Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Le Ragnaie Toscana Bianco

Le Ragnaie Toscana Bianco 2018

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyFrom the highest planted vineyards in Montalcino, this skin contact wine blends the area's traditional white grapes in a 50/50 Trebbiano and Malvasia mix. After a native ferment in stainless for 10 days on skins, this moved into one new 500L French oak barrel for 9 months before bottling unfined, with minimum sulphur. Pouring a glowing light gold hue, this shimmers along the medium palate with tight apricot, bergamot, elderflower, and ample mineral salts. The texture is fine, and acidity is subtle but shining. A well balanced orange wine worth seeking out.Tasted: 05 November 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 44.95 consignment Producer: Azienda Agricola Le RagnaieDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
