Le Ragnaie Rosso di Montalcino 2016


Unlike many of the region's RdM offerings, often composed of the barrels deemed inferior for Brunello, this is a site-specific bottling treated with the same measure of TLC that each of Riccardo's Brunello offerings see. A serious combination of freshness and drinkability, with intensity of fruit and an elegance in abundance; the value on offer here is pretty gobsmacking, especially considering the benchmark nature of the 2016 vintage which is being likened favorably to the classic 2010's.
