"This vineyard in Sant' Angelo in Colle, in the southwestern district of Montalcino, produces a traditional style of brunello. Scents of forest floor, fruity mushrooms, figs and cherries build complexity in this 2007, its tense sangiovese structure focused along a tight, elegant line. Approachable now if decanted and served with braised duck or other meaty game, this will benefit from several years in the cellar." (04/13)

"Textbook Brunello nose from a warm vintage. It grabs from a wide array of elements at its disposal, with balsam, cola and humus, backed by ripe fruit and dark cherry. More layers appear as leather, earth and cured meat. Great complexity and balance. Closes elegant, fresh and clean. -M.L." (05/12)

"Ruby red in color with slight garnet hues. Intense, soft, and spicy on the nose. Great tannic structure in the mouth. Well-balanced and elegant on the palate with a long finish. Pairs well with roasts, grilled meats, game, and aged cheeses." - Winery
"The "Tenimenti Ricci" Estate located in Sant'Angelo is one of the older and more traditional rural establishments in this area of Brunello production. Ferruccio Ricci and his sister Ida, who manage the estate, are deeply rooted in family traditions and Montalcinese wine making, with a modern and youthful approach. The cellar has been recently restored and equipped with temperature conditioning rooms. There, the wine is made, aged in barrels made of Slovanian oak and then bottled. The vineyards cover about 12 hectares concentrating on the Sangiovese grape, planted in a privileged position on the land." - Winery
