Sub Region Brunello di Montalcino
library code: 75366
From the Critics:
- "This is a drink-me Brunello di Montalcino with superb spices, mushrooms and berry character. Wonderfully soft tannins, remarkable balance and a beautiful finish. Love the balance. Drink now." -
- "Medium red. Slightly reduced, musky, balsamic aromas of redcurrant, plum, strawberry and sweet tobacco. Tactile, concentrated and silky, with enticing medicinal reserve to the flavors of plum and salty minerality. Harmonious acidity gives this wine good mid-palate energy. Conveys an impression of strong extract. Finishes serious, distinctive and long, with smooth tannins." (07/12) -
- "The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino caresses the palate with dark cherries, plums, spices, tobacco. This is an especially dark, plush Brunello from Le Ragnaie. In keeping with the style of the year, the 2007 is quite open today and will likely always be an accessible Brunello. With time in the glass the wine truly blossoms, showing off gorgeous nuances of sweet roses, spices and anise, all of which add considerable lift. The 2007 can be enjoyed today, but it needs to be opened at least 1-2 hours in advance. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019."
"Riccardo Campinoti is one of the most promising young producers in Montalcino. With the 2007 vintage, Campinoti is unveiling two new single-vineyard Brunelli. It will be fascinating to see where Le Ragnaie goes in the coming years. The wines are full of promise." (04/12) -
- "A broad, leather- and balsamic-tinged red, offering more savory, spice-tinged flavors than fruit. There's sweetness and balance, tending toward mushroom and woodsy notes on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2025. 2,100 cases made. -BS" (09/12) -
