Brunello di Montalcino Casanovina Montosoli 2016 Le Ragnaie
€ 129,47 (in Vat)
The Le Ragnaie 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Casanovina Montosoli shows the same level of dark fruit intensity that we saw in the other new releases from this estate, however I get more toasted nut and crushed stone in this wine. Like the others, it sees an extended fermentation lasting 45 days or more (with indigenous yeasts). Dark berry fruit and cherry are followed by crushed stone and slate. This expression has an extra layer of elegance and finesse, with only 3,800 bottles produced.

The immediate impression of this Brunello showcases its harmony and charm, evoking black cherry, blackberry, violet, mineral and woodsy flavors. Iron and tobacco accents emerge as this builds on the palate to the long aftertaste, with well-integrated tannins. Concentrated, yet never heavy or imbalanced.
