Quality check on Le Raganie Brunello di Montalcino 2013 and what a showstopper, starting off a bit shy but evolves into a layered complexity with plenty of finesse, with four hours in the decanter its hard to raise your nose from the glass. Red, very vibrant fruit is backed up by dried spices and pronounced but balanced savoury complexity of forrest floor and crushed stones. A subtle volatile lift brings further complexity. Fresh palate with, fine grained tannins and a tactile sensation that brings the wine throughout its long finish. Not Brunello, its a trademark Ragnaie!

Racy yet ripe with beautiful tannins adding serious grip to its cherry dominated profile where acidity, Galestro earthiness and dried herbs add complexity to this classically style Brunello. Built like a cross of Barolo from Brunate and Premier Cru Nuits Saint Georges.

Best wine of 2018. Phenomenal. Funky. Elegant. Paired well with braised oxtail and fontina polenta.

Nose for days. Mouth filling, but super lean on the finish
