The 2005 Le Ragnaie Brunello Di Montalcino is medium bodied with intense aromas of integrated cherry, leather, cedar, thyme, vanilla and an unusual note of red peppercorn. It has a nice acidity, tannins that are refined (decant for 30 to 60 min) and a bit sweet, silky and medium to long finish. Drink now or hold till the next decade. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92 pts - bit more expensive than other Brunello's. Tasted Nov/11.

A nice medium-bodied red wine from Tuscany. Tastes of flowers, cherries and oak. A nice wine but has a touch too much oak taste to my liking. I probably will not buy this again. If you must buy this wine, keep it in the cellar for a couple of years and you may like it more.
