Tasting Note:

From a single plot called Ragnaie, next to the estate, planted in the 60s, which at 550 metres above sea level, are among the very highest vines in Montalcino.

More floral and feminine than the Fornace, perfumed gripping and totally beguiling, a seductive Brunello that offers small, intense berry fruit flavours, aromatic notes of ripe alpine and wild strawberry fruit, red cherry, cherry blossom and sloe touches.
