Le Ragnaie Rosso di Montalcino is an exquisite Italian wine from Tuscany. Its majestic ruby red colour matches its sophisticated flair and charm. This wine is expertly crafted from 100% Sangiovese grapes, creating a wonderful balance of ripe fruit flavours, finely integrated tannins, and a vibrant acidity. On the nose, one may detect elegant notes of dried cherries, spices, and hints of earthy undertones. Its medium-bodied texture on the palate brings forth a well-structured, harmonious composition that leaves a satisfyingly enduring finish. This bewitching wine pairs splendidly with sumptuous Italian cuisine, making it a delightful choice for an exquisite dining experience.
The 2019 betrays ripe aromatic red and black berries on the nose, with some deep camphor and spices notes, floral with very fine sweet tannin - a wine with an engaging personality and more character and interest that you might expect at this level.
