2013 Col d'Orcia Rosso Banditella Rosso di Montalcino DOC

$38.00

Among the rolling hills of Tuscany lies the Col d’Orcia estate, known as the ‘the hill overlooking the Orcia River’ when translated. Their dedication to quality originates from their love for the land, respect for traditional winemaking and perfect growing conditions. This quality is reflective in the Rosso Banditella Rosso di Montalcino, which provides typical Sangiovese notes of plum and lily flowers, accentuated by supple tannins and a full-bodied mouthfeel. This marks an excellent choice for those in search of a wine reminiscent of a great Brunello di Montalcino, but with distinct varietal freshness.


ABV % = 14.5
