Natalie's Score: 93/100

Juicy and spectacularly tasting with great mouth-watering acidity, black cherries and mocha aromas. Full-bodied and smooth. This wine could go the distance for years.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

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.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
