Le Ragnaie Brunello di Montalcino Fornace 2012

Size Pack
750 ml
Case of 6


Underbrush, truffle, crushed herb and ripe black-skinned fruit aromas slowly take shape along with a waft of new leather. The bold palate shows mature black cherry, licorice, clove and tobacco framed in big velvety tannins. This is already tempting but will be even better in a few years. Drink 2020–2027. -Kerin O'Keefe, May 2017

This is a special vineyard selection from Le Ragnaie. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Fornace is one of three new releases from this long-standing winery from this beautiful corner of southern Tuscany. Dark color saturation and rich concentration bring on aromas of black cherry, cassis, grilled herb and savory spice. This wine offers a complete portrait of Sangiovese and Montalcino in a warm vintage. It is robust and hearty, yet it also shows elegant texture and bright acidity on the close. -Monica Larner, Feb 2017

Deep red. Mushrooms, fresh herbs and sweet spices complicate black cherry and plum aromas and flavors. Big, rich and savory, but with mouth-tingling freshness that gives this a refined mouthgfeel and a lovely sense of balance. -Ian D'Agata, Mar 2017

This is rich and polished, with cherry, raspberry, leather and leafy tobacco flavors allied to a firm, dense structure. Finds equilibrium on the long finish of iron and savory. Best from 2020 through 2035. 250 cases made. -Bruce Sanderson, Jun 2017
