Wine Spectator, April 2021

The immediate impression of this Brunello showcases its harmony and charm, evoking black cherry, blackberry, violet, mineral and woodsy flavors. Iron and tobacco accents emerge as this builds on the palate to the long...

jamessuckling.com, November 2020

The flowers, dark mushrooms, forest floor and black cherries are impressive on the nose. Full-bodied with ultra fine and intense tannins that are refined and polished. Very long and polished at the finish. Needs at least...

Wine & Spirits, April 2021

In 2014, Riccardo Campinoti purchased close to 2.5 acres of vines on the Montosoli hill just north of Montalcino's village walls, and the second vintage of his single-vineyard Montosoli bottling is simply gorgeous. It...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 2020

The Le Ragnaie 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Casanovina Montosoli shows the same level of dark fruit intensity that we saw in the other new releases from this estate, however I get more toasted nut and crushed stone in this...

Le Ragnaie winery extends over 28 hectares in Montalcino in the Tuscan province of Siena. The land is cultivated with both vines and olive groves, grown according to the guidelines for organic agriculture. The vineyards are divided into three distinct parcels of land throughout Montalcino which allows them to produce three diverse terroirs of Brunello: Le Ragnaie, Petroso, and Castelnuovo dell'Abate.

Riccardo and Jennifer Campinoti purchased the Le Ragnaie property with a mix of old vines and younger plantings. The estate spreads across 42 acres, 12 acres of which are in the zone where the cellars are based, Le Ragnaie itself. The vines are the highest of any in Montalcino, some reaching 1,960 feet above sea level, in the south-facing central zone over Soldera di Case Basse. As one of the highest points in the region, it became famous for bird catchers, and in fact the traditional bird catchers' net features on the label as part of the winery's logo. The estate takes its name from the fact that this net looked rather like a spider's web (Ragna, in Italian.)
