Ratings & Reviews

97 Points - Vinous Media:
"Bright medium red-ruby. Tighter on the nose than the Fornace bottling but less so than the Casanovina Montosoli, hinting at red fruits and flowers. Then surprisingly smooth and suave in the mouth, with great class and gorgeous purity to the dark and red berry, herb and bitter chocolate flavors. Penetrating minerality contributes to the impression of precision and verve on the long, multilayered and smooth finish." - Ian D'Agata (4/2020)

96 points - James Suckling:
"A deep, suggestive Brunello, redolent of forest floor, roasted tobacco, dried rosemary and toast. Chewy and decadent on the full-bodied palate, but the acidity is always there and the tannins never run astray. No doubt there's hefty alcohol and fruit here, but the way it's presented makes it all very integrated. Dark chocolate and salted caramel push through the long finish. Needs time. Drink from 2026." (10/2019)

96 Points - Wine Spectator:
"A lush style, this red evokes cherry, strawberry, iron, earth, licorice and tobacco aromas and flavors. Intense and vibrant, with fine harmony and a lingering aftertaste of ripe fruit, mineral and spice..." - Bruce Sanderson (6/2020)

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Made with organically farmed grapes and fermented with indigenous yeasts, this opens with varietal aromas of ripe dark-skinned fruit, forest floor, fragrant purple flower, spice and new leather..." - Kerin O'Keefe (5/2020)

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Wild cherries, dried blueberries and dark currants open the bouquet of Le Ragnaie's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Ragnaie V. V. The cherry signature is forefront, and it emerges with medicinal and balsamic notes towed in close..." - Monica Larner (1/2020)

95 Points - Decanter Magazine:

"This reveals itself slowly with curious iron, leather and chestnut notes. The palate offers more of the fruit generosity of the vintage yet is still commanding, rigid and ultimately mineral-driven..." - Michaela Morris (04/2020)
