2006 Col d’Orcia Poggio al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

6 bottles

In stock.

Deep ruby red with light garnet hues. Fine, intense, harmonious. The typical aromas of classic Sangiovese (ripe red fruits and tobacco) are perfectly balanced with the classical oak hints given by the long ageing in the barrique. The elegant structure envelopes the soft, ripe tannins whilst displaying complex red and black fruit characters. 

Col d’Orcia’s Poggio al Vento was one of Tuscany’s first single-vineyard Brunellos, first released in 1982. As the winery’s most celebrated wine, it is made only in excellent vintages with just 20,000-25,000 bottles produced. The advanced age of the vines (over 40 years old) generates concentrated flavours and aromas to the wine, while the well-drained calcareous soils contribute structure. 

While this intense wine is now coming of age, it can also be cellared for many more years, suggested to 2030.

18/20 - Decanter

A classic vintage, producing bright fruit and mouthwateringly ripe tannins in a carefully grown wine, made to blossom during ageing.

95 points - Wine Enthusiast (Kerin O'Keeffe)

This iconic Brunello seamlessly combines power and finesse. It opens with earthy aromas of underbrush, tobacco, tilled soil and blackberries. The dense palate delivers juicy black cherry and raspberry alongside black pepper, licorice and a balsam note. It's impeccably balanced but still very young, and still showing racy acidity and assertive tannins. Give it time to soften and develop more complexity. Drink 2016–2031. (Reviewed Jan 2014)
