Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Al Vento 2006

Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Al Vento 750ML 2006          
Sku: 53057

Tasting notes
Color - Deep ruby red with light garnet hues. Bouquet - Intense and multifaceted. Fruit forward, with hints of licorice, mushrooms and chocolate developing to add further complexity. Taste - Full-bodied, well-structured and powerful at first, leading into a soft, caressing and lingering aftertaste.

A dense, fresh red, with cherry and plum flavors that lean toward the jammy side. Tobacco and briar accents add depth while firm grip lends definition to the finish. Best from 2016 through 2028. 1,460 cases made.-BS

The same can be said about Col d’Orcia’s 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento. Col d’Orcia places a little more emphasis on structure than Valdicava, so I was surprised by how well the 2006 showed, considering it hasn’t even been released yet. 96+ Points

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento bursts from the glass with an exciting array of sweet dark cherries, flowers, mint and licorice. All of the elements are in the right place. The 2006 combines power and finesse to a degree I have seldom experienced in the Col d’Orcia wines. Layers of fruit flow through to the huge, authoritative finish. Readers will be tempted to try the 2006 young, and so will I, to tell the truth. Although I would love to be wrong, the reality is that the 2006 isn’t likely to be at its peak until age 20 or so. This is a fantastic showing from Col d’Orcia. Yields in 2006 were the lowest ever (with the exception of 1997), which explains much of the wine’s richness and sheer power. Anticipated maturity: 2026-2046.

Wine maker notes
The finest grape bunches are rigorously selected during hand-harvesting. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks at controlled temperatures below 30C. After 20 days, the wine is transferred to Slavonian and French oak casks to age for a period of four years, followed by further refinement in the bottle for 18 months prior to release.

Technical notes
100% Sangiovese

Food pairing
A perfect accompaniment to pts, foie gras, grilled fish steaks and roasts.
