Elegance. That is the heartbeat of Le Ragnaie's wines. Vigneron Riccardo Campinoti has rapidly ascended the ranks of a stoic and timeless region. 2010 marked a move entirely to large barrels and no barriques at all in addition to all fermentation being carried out in concrete. The vintage, maligned by many, was a blessing in disguise for Riccardo as his high elevation (highest vineyard in Montalcino) allowed the wines to see cooler nights than the lower lying sites below. Most vineyards in Montalcino lacked concentration of color and flavor while showing a weedy note. Le Ragnaie has the signature seamlessness and yet ripe and mature fruit. Monica Larner of The Wine Advocate hailed Le Ragnaie as the 'breakout star of the 2010 vintage.'

This is very pretty and supple on the palate, yet with flavors that are also quite forward. Dried cherries, sweet tobacco, wild flowers, mint and anise meld together in a delicate, mature Brunello to drink now and over the next decade.
