About

91

"This 2005 Brunello opens with a soft and supple nose that is accented by tones of sweet cherry, blackberry and spice. All these elements integrate well and the acidity versus tannin equation is equally balanced."

90 Wine Spectator

"Ripe plum and berries on the nose lead to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with medium velvety tannins and an aftertaste of fruit, toasty oak and vanilla bean. Still holding back for the vintage. Best after 2011. 1,250 cases made."

Product Description:

"The Tenimenti Ricci Estate located in Sant'Angelo in Colle near Montalcino is one of the older and more traditional rural establishments in this area of Brunello production. Ferruccio Ricci and his sister Ida manage it recreating the deep-rooted family traditions. Notwithstanding its ancient pedigree , the estate is now managed in a modern and youthful way but always faithful to the Montalcinese tradition. The cellar has been recently restored and equipped with temperature conditioning rooms. There, the wine is made, aged in barrels made in slovanian oak and then bottle.

The wineyards cover about 12 hectares concentrating on the sangiovese grape and they are planted in a privileged position on the hill nearthe medieval village and down to the plain towards the River Orcia." -Winery
