Ciacci Col d’Orcia Rosso di Montalcino 2011
Color – Deep ruby red Bouquet – Complex and fresh, with inviting fruit aromas balanced by oak-imparted spices Taste – Well-structured and full-bodied, with fine tannins that promise great aging capacity; long and impressive finish.
Wine Spectator 92 points – Macerated cherry and plum flavors mingle with iron, meat, eucalyptus and tobacco flavors in this dense, beefy red. Compact, leaving a bitter almond note on the finish, yet staying fresh. Best from 2020 through 2032. 16,000 cases made. -BS.June/2017
