Quality check on Le Raganie Brunello di Montalcino 2013 and what a showstopper, starting off a bit shy but evolves into a layered complexity with plenty of finesse, with four hours in the decanter its hard to raise your nose from the glass. Red, very vibrant fruit is backed up by dried spices and pronounced but balanced savoury complexity of forrest floor and crushed stones. A subtle volatile lift brings further complexity. Fresh palate with, fine grained tannins and a tactile sensation that brings the wine throughout its long finish. Not Brunello, its a trademark Ragnaie!

Racy yet ripe with beautiful tannins adding serious grip to its cherry dominated profile where acidity, Galestro earthiness and dried herbs add complexity to this classically style Brunello. Built like a cross of Barolo from Brunate and Premier Cru Nuits Saint Georges.

Delicate but not dainty, pretty, sexy with musky undertones. Perfumed. Black cherry, red currants, dried orange potpourri, clove, sassafras (in the alcohol), fruit leather, thyme. Barbaresco-esque, loads of dried florals and potpourri, high acid but not with the young Nebb astringency. Shroom and sous bois comes with last pour of course. Enjoyed with a 30-day aged ribeye and side of: chanterelle, shiitake mushrooms. Not your typical Suckling Brunello.

Best wine of 2018. Phenomenal. Funky. Elegant. Paired well with braised oxtail and fontina polenta.

Nose for days. Mouth filling, but super lean on the finish
