Le Ragnaie Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is an Italian delight, meticulously crafted in Tuscany's Montalcino region. This red wine reflects an enchanting blend of exquisite flavours and robust textures. It's inviting with a deep ruby colour, expressing rich aromas of black cherry, plum, and subtle earthy tones. An elegant balance of tannins and acidity complements its full-bodied palate, enhancing the complex notes of spice and sweet tobacco. This wine, aged gracefully for over five years, delivers an extraordinarily long and smooth finish. Le Ragnaie Brunello di Montalcino is an embodiment of sophistication, making it a luxurious choice for wine connoisseurs.
The traditional Brunello has a full, red-fruited bouquet with an undertow of blood orange, citrus, balsamic and spice. If the vintage is felt anywhere it is perhaps in the slightly edgier tannins, but these are more than offset by the wild cherry fruits, herbs, mint and stones so typical of this zone to give an overall handsome, traditional feel
