"Extremely perfumed and decadent with dried fruit, orange peel and meat on the nose. Full body, linear and bright with intense citrus. Long and powerful. Like a Barolo! Drink or hold. Made from organic grapes."
93 Wine Enthusiast
"You'll find aromas suggesting forest floor, tobacco leaf, grilled herb and pressed rose petal on this vibrant medium-bodied red. The firm palate evokes sour cherry, star anise, ground clove and a toasted note while firm, refined tannins and bright acidity provide balance and structure. Give it time to fully develop. Drink 2023–2030."
93 Ian Dagata - Vinous Media
"Bright red. Perfumed, precise aromas of raspberry, strawberry, espresso, minerals and violet. Penetrating, linear and youthfully juicy and fresh, featuring raspberry and bitter cherry fruit flavors given clarity by firm but harmonious acidity and a pronounced mineral component that is very Le Ragnaie-like. This very floral, pristine Brunello has an almost Pinot Noir-like primary quality and superb inner-mouth tension. The finish is extremely bright, long and clean."
93 Wine & Spirits
"Riccardo Campinoti blends fruit from five vineyards in different areas of the Montalcino zone to produce this wine. It rides the edge between lean and lush with its cool, mineral tannins and bright cherry flavors, darker tones of blistered tomato and smoked game adding depth."
92 Wine Spectator
"Macerated cherry, berry, savory wild herb and tobacco flavors are the hallmarks of this mineral-tinged red. Fluid, yet supported by a solid backbone of tannins and acidity. Best from 2021 through 2035. 2,350 cases made, 750 cases imported. — BS"
91 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Le Ragnaie always makes elegant and graceful wines, as is demonstrated by the delightful 2013 Brunello di Montalcino. The delivery of fruit is immediate and fresh, but the wine shows volume and staying power with a firm grip on the palate. Sour cherry, cassis, grilled herb and cola conspire to create aromatic intensity. In the mouth the wine is tight, streamlined and delicately nuanced."
