Wine Advocate 94 points - Sweet, rich, lush and layered, yet also remarkably light on its feet, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino dazzles from start to finish. Sweet roses, red berries, flowers, mint and orange peel all take an appearance in this utterly impeccable polished Brunello. I imagine the 2008 will still be a special wine at age 30. The aromas are naturally still quite primary, so some cellaring is advisable. The brutal August hailstorm took with it a full 40% of the production, but left behind a strikingly beautiful Brunello endowed with seemingly endless layers of fruit and fabulous overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2038.”,,, (Jun 2013)

Wine maker notes
Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches in the vineyard and subsequently further hand selection on a sorting table in the cellar. Maximum yield allowed by the Production Regulation is 80 q/ha. Avg. Col d’Orcia Brunello yield: 61 q/ha. Fermented on the skins for about 18-20 days at a controlled temperature of less than 86ºF in 150hl wide and shallow stainless steel tanks designed and built in order to extract tannin and color efficiently but delicately.
