Le Ragnaie Brunello di Montalcino Fornace 2011
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
A racy, refined wine with blueberry and cedar undertones. Some lemon rind. Full body, silky tannins and a savory finish. Love the dried mushroom, meat and dried spice with ripe fruit on the finish. Drink or hold.
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Fornace exudes an incredibly smooth and silky texture that caresses all the senses. The wine slowly reveals aromas of cassis, dried cherry, licorice and balsam herb that add to the purity and the intensity of the bouquet. The finish is soft and lively with long lasting freshness and fruit integrity.
Taut and expressive, with sweet cherry, strawberry, earth and spice flavors deftly woven into the finely knit structure. The finish is long and subtle, offering echoes of fruit, underbrush and spice. Best from 2017 through 2027. 250 cases made.
