Quick Facts

The Wine’s Story

Elegance, that is the heartbeat of Le Ragnaie’s wines. Vigneron Riccardo Campinoti has rapidly ascended the ranks of a stoic and timeless region. 2010 marked the second year to shun the use of barriques for maturation and for all fermentation to occur in concrete. Many consider 2010 to be an all-time great and for Riccardo it was his moment to be appreciated by the world’s Brunello lovers, including most of the influential wine critics.
