Tasting Note:

Perfumed, opulent crushed ripe red berry flavours with earthier notes of sweet spice. Corpulent and smooth with a nice thread of acidity providing balance and drinkability. Easy to love, these intense, melt in the mouth flavours overlay a deceptively supple but solid structure. Riccardo’s best Fornace so far. Le Ragnaie’s Riccardo Campinoti believes this to be “My best vintage, a nice combination of a great season and the experience I have been building up over the years. Everything happened at the right time, the season was mild and balanced, the grapes were in perfect shape.” Fornace is a north-east facing plot in the warm, sunny Castelnuovo dell’Abate zone. Aged for 36 months in large Slavonian oak casks. 3000 bottles were made.
