Tasting Note:

Crystal clear and alpine pure, discrete initially but such crisp, vivid red cherry and wild strawberry fruit with a kick of chalk, stone and mineral. Bright, elegant and with crisp but well-knit tannins, this a thrilling, noble wine with a long future. 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. The wine is aged in the same way as the estate’s regular Brunello in large 25hl Slavonian oak barrels for 36 months. Rarely more than 3000 bottles are produced.
