2019 Le Ragnaie Troncone Sangiovese
Le Ragnaie is a breath of fresh air in Montalcino. Riccardo and Jennifer Campinoti purchased the property with a mix of old vines and younger plantings in 1991. The estate spreads across 42 acres, 12 acres of which are in the zone where the cellars are based, Le Ragnaie itself.
The Troncone offers generosity in concentration of aroma and flavor but not the aroma or flavor in itself. Aromas of cranberry and cherry abound with laurel leaves and wet stones. The palate extends with bright red fruit continuing to be layered over a frail skeletal structure.
