Le Ragnaie Brunello di Montalcino Casanovina Montosoli 2015


The first bottling from this newly acquired cru, the parcel needs no introduction as it was the first single vineyard bottling in Montalcino, by Altesino, and has produced some of the most mineral driven and ethereal Sangioveses in the region at the hand of Nello Baricci. Dark and brooding today, the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Casanovina Montosoli lifts from the glass with an alluring display of mineral-infused black cherry, complemented by hints of mint leaf, then given further depths, as dark soil tones and a hint of animal musk develops in the glass. Strawberry and cedar give way to savory herbs and minerals with pretty inner florals.
