Tasting Notes


ABV:
13.5 %

Notes

A large part of the grapes for this come from vines at Ragnaie itself, at 550 metres above sea level the highest vines in Montalcino, complemented by grapes coming from Petroso and Castelnuovo dell’Abate. A fresh, high-toned and fragrant nose of Alpine strawberries and sloes, beautifully bright and lush, long, elegant fruit flavours complemented by notes of earth, fresh herb and Asian spice. Multi-layered, intense and very moreish. Stunning.

Notes
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino has developed beautifully over the last year. It is an especially delineated wine for the vintage. Finessed, silky tannins frame an expressive core of ripe red berries, freshly cut flowers, licorice and spices. The mid-weight structure suggests the 2006 is probably not going to be a long-term ager, but it is delicious today, and should continue to drink well for at least a handful of years. This is a lovely showing.

Le Ragnaie

Le Ragnaie

Le Ragnaie was a rookie estate established by the young Riccardo and Jennifer Campinoti when they bought the farmhouse and some well-placed old vines back in 2003. Since then they have gone on to become one of the region’s brightest new stars. The estate spreads accross15ha, five of which are in the zone where the cellars are based, Le Ragnaie itself. These vines are the highest of any in Montalcino, at 550 metres above sea level, south facing in the central zone above Soldera di Case Basse. As one of the highest points in the region it became famous for bird catchers, in fact the traditional birdcatchers' net features on the label as part of the winery's logo. The estate takes its name from the fact that this net looked rather like a spider's web (Ragna, in Italian.) Complimenting these vineyards are those from Petroso, a vineyard area along the Scarnacuoia road below the village of Montalcino (one of the oldestwine making zones in the area.) in addition to some from Castelnuovo dell'Abate, a vineyard located in the southern sector of Montalcino in front of the Amiata Mountain, next door to Poggio di Sotto. As of 2015 there is a new single cru, Montosoli, one of the most highly-esteemed zones in the whole of the region, sitting on the north side of Montalcino. Organic viticulture is employed, grapes are hand picked, de-stemmed, fermented and then aged in large 25 hl slavonian oak casks for 36 months. The high vineyards of Ragnaie that form the basis of the blend plus the long, gentle macerations result in enormously charming, aromatic and really quite high toned wines that still manage to retain the requisite power. A unique, extremely drinkable style of Brunello that will sweep you off your feet.
