2016 Brunello di Montalcino, Fornace, Le Ragnaie


$149.00 per Bottle


18 Bottles




"Of the five new releases from Le Ragnaie, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Fornace is distinguished by its richness, its sultry dark fruit flavors and the firmness of the tannins. The wine is fermented in cement for up to 45 days on ambient yeasts. The fruit comes from 35-year-old vines. All these factors contribute to the rich concentration you taste here and the long impression the wine leaves on the finish. Production is a mere 4,470 bottles." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Fornace is a dark, smoky and savory expression of southern Montalcino fruit. A beguiling display of earthy minerals encasing blackberry and cherry with exotic spice and sour citrus resonates in the glass. It’s deeply textural, silky yet verging on velvety, all carried by vibrant acids with ripe red fruits, savory herbs and inner florals which gain volume toward the close. Hints of dried orange peels and black tea linger through the long and youthfully tannic finale." Eric Guido, Vinous.com
