The Le Ragnaie 2018 Brunello di Montalcino Passo del Lume Spento (with 3,700 bottles made) is very pretty in this vintage with tart cherry and lifted aromas of cola, garden herb, blue flower and blood orange. This is usually my favorite of the three single-vineyard wines produced by this estate. I applaud the relatively contained 13.5% alcohol content that lets you enjoy more of the wine in one sitting. The tannins melt softly over the palate.

The 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino Passo Del Lume is vibrant and minty with fresh herbs, orange peel, bergamot, and raspberry. On the palate, it is medium-bodied, with pure notes of blood orange, red cherry, and tea leaf. It offers a salty and soft mineral texture that makes for a mouthwatering and savory wine that is elegant and energetic in its expression. This is a wine I want on my table all year round for its transparency and refreshing nature. Drink 2023-2043.
