Le Ragnaie, Toscana Vino Bianco, 2020

$34.99
Get 10% off purchases of 12+ bottles of wine. (Use code 10OFF at checkout.)

A blend of very old (no one can actually figure out when they were planted) Trebbiano and Malvasia. The grapes sit on their skins for 6 days with punchdowns a few times a day to gently extract as much flavor and texture as possible, while avoiding the bitter phenolics found in a lot of skin fermented wines. They then sit in neutral barrels for 9 months, allowing a touch of oxidation to occur.

This wine is full of dried citrus notes, iodine and smoky minerality. The palate is slightly chewy but not overwhelming, with undertones of herbs and tea, and a long savory finish.

Le Ragnaie is the greatest thing to emerge in Montalcino so far this century. It may be the greatest thing to emerge in Montalcino since the rise of Soldera, with whom they have much in common: an uncompromising adherence to tradition (aging exclusively in large neutral Slavonian oak barrels, ultra-long macerations), natural farming, minimal intervention in the cellar, and excellent terroir.

But there is one way in which Le Ragnaie stands apart from Soldera that makes their wines even more extreme: high altitudes. Le Ragnaie farms the highest altitude vines in Brunello di Montalcino! Some vineyards are so high up that they are above Brunello di Montalcino's legal limit of 600 meters.
