2013 Col d’Orcia Poggio al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

6 bottles

Out of stock. Contact us to order this product.

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.

Certified Organic.

96 pts - Monica Larner (Robert Parker's Wine Advocate)

This is Col d'Orcia's top-shelf wine that was skipped over in the difficult 2014 vintage. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento sets this venerable Riserva program squarely back on track thanks to its balanced intensity and classic lines. Like in the other Sangiovese-based wines from this historic Montalcino estate, this wine is distinguished by those estate-specific savory and sanguine notes that recall rusty nail or iron, all followed by balsam herb, powdered licorice and even a touch of eucalyptus oil. The wine's texture is medium in weight and ultimately this expression is more buoyant in mouthfeel than you might initially expect of a wine that has aged for this long. Some 15,500 bottles will be released in January 2020.

96 pts - Kerin O'Keefe (Wine Enthusiast)

Aromas of underbrush, wild berry, leather, camphor and Mediterranean herb waft out of the glass. The full-bodied palate is still young and primary but shows great aging potential, delivering juicy red cherry, pomegranate, licorice and tobacco set against firm tannins while bright acidity keeps it balanced. Drink 2023–2043.
