Col d’Orcia 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Release (VIRTUAL WINE TASTING)
Col d’Orcia: Wine Brunello di Montalcino
Join us as we are transported to Tuscany to learn about Brunello wine. Watch as we taste the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino release virtually with Count Francesco Marone Cinzano, owner of Col d’Orcia.
Col d’Orcia is the third largest owner of Brunello vineyards in Montalcino and the largest organic vineyard in Tuscany.
Situated on the outskirts of the medieval hilltop village of Montalcino, in Tuscany’s Siena province, the estate has a rich winemaking history dating back to the 14th century.
The estate’s name translates to “the hill overlooking the Orcia River,” due to its position in between the undulating hills of the Orcia River and Sant’Angelo in Colle.
Alongside his 2016 Brunello, we taste Poggio al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2013, and Olmaia Sant’Antimo Cabernet DOC 2015.
All three wines are produced entirely with organically grown grapes farmed on the Col d’Orcia estate and bottled on location.

I’m honored to taste these wines with so many of my favorite wine people and be reminded of the beautiful life I once lived and the beautiful life I continue to live.
All made better with a bottle of Brunello by my side.
