About Col d'Orcia

Originally from Piemonte, the Cinzano family — yes, that Cinzano family, the one that brought Vermouth to the global market —acquired the Col d’Orcia... estate in the 1970s and the winery’s Poggio al Vento soon became one of the iconic Brunello bottlings. The largest certified organic estates in all of Tuscany, Col d'Orcia's positioning on Brunello’s southwestern slope offers a warmer climate and helps the estate’s grapes become rounder, gentler, and a little less acidic than those from other parts of Montalcino. Col d'Orcia boasts albarese soil, the limestone-rich, mineral-laden earth that helps make Tuscany special. Col d’Orcia’s tenth-generation winemaker, Santiago Marone Cinzano, uses vinification techniques that are a mix of traditional and modern — for example, the estate employs both botti and barriques for aging, and this combination offers a compelling integration of power and finesse, as well as a terrific marriage of age-worthiness and drinkability.
