Tasting Note:

Lots of ruby red fruit, a bit closed aromatically but a purity and intensity on the palate - not heavy but not wanting for concentration either. Clearly shooting for the more ethereal style. Raspberry leaf, a touch of rock salt and rose petals. Ripe raspberry and stones. 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.
