The Wine’s Story
‘V.V.’ (Vecchie Vigne) is a polarizing wine for many as it has such a tight core. It shows the freshness and brightness of this high-altitude site, the highest in all of Montalcino. Freshly cut flowers, black cherries and spices are some of the many notes that flow from the glass in this beautifully delineated Brunello. Expressive aromatics are woven throughout, adding harmony and finesse. The Ragnaie V.V. is an example of how well some of the central, higher-altitude plots performed in 2012.
