Azienda Agricola Le Ragnaie

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2018

Medium ruby , wide pink ruby rim . Ripe , quite high toned red cherry , strawberry , mint and herbs . High strict acidity , even with the ripe red fruits, herbal touches , cedar to balance. Quite sweet tannins and ok length , nicely balanced and delicately done. Successful for the vintage though not really long term or particularly complex . Drink from now over the next 5-10 years . — 20 days ago

Il Marroneto

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Mid Ruby/garnet in colour. Earthy aromas - freshly tilled earth, red cherry, plum skins, menthol, leather and liquorice. The medium weight palate shows savoury cherry, spice and liquorice with fine persistent tannins. Drinking at its peak but will stay at this level for another 5 plus years. A brilliant match with pappardelle pasta, lamb, fresh basil and Parmesan (thanks Georgie). This wine was a treat, from an excellent year for Brunello - wish I had a few more bottles. — 11 days ago

Thanks Jamie. When the wine is stellar like this was, the notes come easy.

Castello Romitorio

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese

Please note: this is a review of the Costello, Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino *Reserva*, vintage 2015. I’m pretty sure this is a different wine than listed in the Delectable app.

2015 opened October 2023. Raw leather and raspberries on the nose. Pomegranate fruit on the front. Medium tannic structure that’s tightly closed with a lot of minerality. Long finish that’s tart but fades into a warm honey feeling on the back of the throat. This is a lovely wine that’s both challenging and satisfying.

Pertimali (Livio Sassetti)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2008

Popped and poured; enjoyed with Wednesday night dinner of leftover ragu and tagliatelle. The 2008 Pertimali BdM, pours a deep ruby color with a nearly opaque, turbid core progressing out to a more orangish color with a watery rim. Medium+ viscosity with very light staining of the tears and signs of fine sediment (hence the turbidity). On the nose, the wine is vinous with notes of ripe and desiccated cherry, curaçao, black tea, leather, porchini, Italian herbs, dusty earth, and spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium tannins and medium+ acid. The tannins are completely integrated at this point. Full-bodied. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long and satisfying; and a sublime accompaniment to our meal. The 2008 is in a really great place right now (if you appreciate mature wines) and should maintain for at least a few years. Drink by 2028.
