There is a deal on Col D' Orcia 2011 which brings it down to $45.00 10% off 6 packs. We tasted it at the Republic tasting last week. The wine is seriously showing. The one we tasted was popped in front of us and was immediately exceptional. We went back after some had air. Very multi layered. Robust in cherry. This wine is normally $50.00-$60.00 (3 reviews below)
All the best, Rex & Michele
"Forest floor, rosemary, ripe berry, new leather and a whiff of earth are just some of the aromas in this structured red. The full-bodied, chewy palate flexes muscle and restraint, offering ripe black cherry, licorice, clove and dried aromatic herb while firm, ripe tannins provide the framework. While it won't need many years to become accessible, it also has some staying power. Drink 2019-2026." -Erin O'Keefe, May 2016,

"Broad and beefy, with rich aromas of cherry, earth and leather. Retains enough smoothness and acidity to drive the cherry, tobacco and eucalyptus flavors to a long finish. Best from 2017 through 2025. 16,500 cases made." -Bruce Sanderson, Jun 2016,

"A delicious and balanced 2011 Brunello with dried cherry, floral and strawberry character. Medium body, super polished tannins and a clean, crisp finish. Drink now.
