Top 100 Wine of 2020 (#61)!
Brunello Nastagio is the result of the long experience accumulated by Col d’Orcia in the development and management of the Sangiovese vineyard. Nastagio is also the result of the many Research chapters conducted over more than twenty years by Col d’Orcia with the University of Florence. The aging in Tonneaux (500 liters) oak barrels and then in the traditional large “botti” represent the meeting point between tradition and modernity, preserving the essential aspect of longevity.
Nastagio (also known as Nastasio) is the name of an ancient farm house of the “Fattoria di Sant’Angelo”, which was already included in the maps of Grand Duke Leopold.
James Suckling: 97 Points
“This is one of the most powerful and structured Brunellos I have tasted from the 2015 vintage, showing rich, chewy tannins that are polished and poised. It’s full-bodied and chewy, yet focused and pretty. There’s purity of fruit that is very, very impressive. From organically grown grapes. This needs at least three or four years to soften and come together. Best wine ever from here. Better after 2023.”
