Le Ragnaie Brunello di Montalcino 2009

Member Review by Bob Fyke:

Rich Earth and aromatic red cherry skins with underlying minerality and notes of dried herbs (thyme?). Later green tobacco and sandalwood appear on the nose. The palate is delicious being somehow rich and lean at the same time.Spiced red cherry leads the way with nice freshness and juicy acidity. The finish is long and finely textured. Satisfying, and complete. 91 Pts

Riccardo Campinoti’s 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a unique wine in that it offers lower fruit personality and a much higher degree of floral intensity. You get pressed rose petal and violets with earthy garden tones and even a bright note of chopped mint. The wines are fermented in cement and then moved to oak casks for 36 months. Also of special note is the silky and refined nature of the tannin. Drink: 2017–2023.

Loaded with licorice and sweet cherry notes, this red is supple and juicy. Takes on a saline, savory character, lingering on the minerally finish. Shows fine harmony overall. Best from 2015 through 2025.
