Brunello Compared – Sold out
Pollenzo-Banca del Vino
Two areas of Montalcino that encapsulate a unique territory with different production methods, which affect the characteristics of this great Tuscan red. Col d’Orcia owes its name to the Orcia River and is located in southwestern Montalcino, overlooking Grosseto; Nardi is on the opposite side of the river on the east, facing Pienza. We’ll be tasting three great millesimi: 1999, 2006 and 2010 of these two grand crus to understand the importance of their terroir. Poggio al Vento by Col d’Orcia will be compared with Nardi’s Manachiara Vineyard. To accompany the wine there will be brown cow Parmigiano Reggiano at various ages of maturation.
