Well balanced and well priced, this beautifully balanced Brunello by vintner Riccardo Campinoti offers tones of cherry, forest bush, cola, exotic spice and black licorice. It has a naturally meaty or succulent nature, yet it also speaks of Montalcino tradition. Drink after 2013 to allow the tannins to soften and the oak notes to fully integrate.
Carob, sour cherry, bramble, leafy greens and exotic spice are some of the eclectic aromatic components of this wine’s bright bouquet. The more you sniff, the more you get pipe tobacco, forest fruit and blackberry. The mouthfeel is firm, tonic and compact.
Le Ragnaie offers an attractively well-balanced Rosso with equal parts spice, dark fruit and tobacco on the nose. In the mouth, this wine is full of dimension and power and its rich berry flavors last a long time.
