Italian Wine Podcast Episode 515 : IWP presents onte Francesco Marone Cinzano interviewed by Monty Waldin
This week Monty Waldin talks to Conte Francesco Marone Cinzano, owner of the Col D’Orcia Winery.
Col D’Orcia is a certified organic winery in Sant Angelo Scalo in the south-west of the Montalcino region of Tuscany, Italy. It is the biggest organic wine producer and second-largest producer overall of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG after the nearby Castello Banfi.
The origins of the estate dates to 1650, when the family of the cavaliers Della Ciaia established a vast estate near to Sant’Angelo. In 1973 Count Alberto Marone Cinzano acquired the company from the Franceschi family of Il Poggione. At this time Montalcino was relatively unknown but its renown was growing. From 1992 the estate passed to Francesco Marone Cinzano.
