Col d'Orcia, an organic island in the Montalcino territory, is the symbol of the classic and traditional Brunello.

Since August 27, 2010 the whole estate including vineyards, olive groves, other fields and even the garden are farmed following exclusively organic agricultural practices. With this certification, Col d’Orcia has become the largest certified organic vineyard in Tuscany. Just outside the medieval hilltop village of Montalcino lies Col d’Orcia – the hill overlooking the Orcia river, with a rich winemaking history dating back to the 1700s. The estate is one of the oldest producers and began creating Italy’s most revered red wine, Brunello di Montalcino, more than 100 years ago. Since 1973 the Marone Cinzano family has contributed to the development and success of Montalcino and its Brunello on world markets. Col d’Orcia embraces 1,300 acres of land, 350 of which are planted with vines. The vineyards, located in the hilly region between the Orcia river and Sant’Angelo in Colle, are dedicated primarly to Sangiovese
