Col d’Orcia has contributed very actively in creating the Rosso di Montalcino category. In the early 70s, Count Marone Cinzano was inspired to bottle a young Sangiovese to drink every day during meals. Other local producers soon followed suit and in 1983 Rosso di Montalcino became a D.O.C. by means of a Decree of the President of the Italian Republic.
Rosso di Montalcino is today a classic wine, made with pure Sangiovese grapes, which comes out one year after the harvest in order to maintain all the freshness and fruitiness of a young wine but at the same time the intensity of that terroir that only Montalcino is capable of transmitting.

Intense ruby ​​red, the nose expresses intense notes of ripe red fruits embellished by a light spicy hint given by the wood. In the mouth it is long, full and balanced, characterized by a soft and enveloping tannic texture. It closes with a rather persistent finish on the fruit.
