Le Ragnaie, Rosso di Montalcino, 2018

$35.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.

Le Ragnaie farms the highest altitude vines in all of Montalcino.

This Rosso di Montalcino is from a single vineyard site that is treated exactly the same as a Brunello, and could be legally classified as such were it released one year later. At turns floral (crushed violets, roses), savory and herbaceous, it's lifted, supple and fresh, with notes of red cherry and baking spice.

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.
