2016 Le Ragnaie "Vigna Vecchia" Brunello di Montalcino

Regular price $155.00
Unit price

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Sourced from the estate's oldest and highest altitude vineyards with over 50 years of age and over 600m in altitude. These are also some of the highest vineyards in the appellation boundaries. Of the Le Ragnaie single vineyards, it has the most tension-packed structure, with angular tannins and linear drive.

We tend to focus on the older estates in Montalcino, but there is emerging young talent that cannot be ignored. I'd add Sesti, Stella di Campalto, and now Le Ragnaie to that list. They've only been around for twenty years, but they immediately came on my radar when I tried the 2007 Fornace at Coltivare a few year ago and was absolutely floored by it. In terms of style these are quite traditional, with dried fruits, aged tobacco, iodine, and dried underbrush notes. As with all great wines, they are intense, but glide along the palate with elegance. They've already fallen into the 'dreadful' allocated status from our suppliers, and I fear they will become more scarce every year from here on out.
