Podere Le Ripi Amore e Magia Brunello di Montalcino 2017

95 POINTS: Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"From a vineyard site not too far away from the winery near Castelnuovo dell'Abate on the eastern and cooler side of the appellation, this wine was once a Rosso di Montalcino recently upgraded to Brunello status. With vines planted in 2000, the fruit now renders the complexity and depth to represent this celebrated Tuscan appellation. This is a tight and compact wine, with a nervous quality of fruit that will unwind and settle with more bottle age. This vineyard site produces fruit poised for long-term aging, and these 2016 results follow that mandate. There is a lot of crisp fruit, sour cherry and cranberry in this tonic, lively Brunello (with 15,000 bottles hitting the market in January 2021)."
— Monica Larner

"Full-bodied and savory, this has alluring aromas of baked plum, fragrant blue flowers and forest floor. Concentrated but also endowed with a beguiling weightlessness, the smooth, enveloping palate delivers juicy black cherry, raspberry jam, licorice and espresso set against velvety, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2023–2029."
