Brunello di Montalcino by Le Ragnaie | 2016
Le Ragnaie is a 21st century love story. In 2000, its owners, Riccardo and Jennifer Campinoti, purchased a mix of young vines and old ones, spread throughout three prime sub-zones of Montalcino. The name comes from La Ragna, meaning spider web, hence the drawing on the label. It's a nod to their highest vineyards, located southwest of Montalcino, that soar to 2,000 feet, looking down on Soldera's Case Basse state. Some of these sky-high vines are in this bottle, which gives the wine its irresistible, Burgundian-like clarity. While the remaining fruit, sourced from the heart of Montalcino and the warmer southeast corner, piece together the wine's tannin and ever-lasting acidity.
Made by gentle skin maceration and aged in Slavonian oak (2,500 liters), Le Ragnaie is more traditional than modern, but it masterfully flirts with the things we love about a softer style of Brunello — a endless swirl of cherry, sweet wild strawberry, and tannins that are strong, but somehow sway and bend. With all great wines, there's no substitute for great terroir. So, experience the best of Montalcino, with a spider and its web.
