Great value. Basically a baby Brunello

Lovely red cherries, crunchy tannins and lively acidity. A great everyday drinking experience.

Sour cherry, heady potpourri and hints of leather and earth. Refreshing acidity. Looks surprisingly light in the glass.

Bought this since I enjoyed the 2012 this earthy 13 was a disappointment.

When i first reviewed this wine i was unimpressed. However This stuff is beautiful now. Smooth tannins. Cherry notes. Forrest floor? May be this is great because of the dessert climate around me - Anza Borrego.

Tense, even astringent in a good way. Dried fruit, flowers, bloody.

Pure, classic Sangiovese aromatics. Smooth mouthfeel with killer acidity. Easy drinking! Another great effort from Ragnaie!

What we have here is the 2013 the new vintage. The store was out of the 12. They said the 13 is even better (wine house in LA) they are wrong. Light in color no classic Sangiovese flavors. Tasted side by side with the 12 it lacks weight and complexity. I will let this sit and try tomorrow again. For now a disappointment. This vintage is NOT a baby brunello like others commented sorry. Well tasted 3 month later it is indeed very good.
