Count Francesco Marone Cinzano  is a descendant of the Spanish royal family  and descendant of the founder of Cinzano, the world-renowned  vermouth business created in 1757.

He is the owner Col d’Orcia in Montalcino , south of Siena amongst the picturesque most beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany.

Brunello di Montalcino is a world renowned wine made from 100% Sangiovese grapes  from this area. It possesses aromas of  cherries, plums, flowers,earth, coffee, liquorice and chocolate – a kind of scent which makes you stop to ponder. The Italians have a phrase for this, vini di meditazione – wines for meditation.

We were lucky enough to have the Count  present the following fantastic Col d’Orcia wines
