PODERE LE RIPI CIELO D'ULISSE BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO 2013Podere Le Ripi
From an uber-organic winery owned by coffee magnate Francesco Illy, Podere Le Ripi takes organic & biodynamic principles to a whole new level resulting in wines that are pure and an accurate reflection of the Montalcino terroir.
Their first harvest was only in 2003 and they’re already winning awards. Made from 100% Sangiovese it is complex on the palate - great minerality and a slightly bitter aftertaste. So smooth…. ripe cherries & strawberries, light herbs and slight orangy bitterness – much lighter than most Brunellos but has an incredible long finish. Drink with dry aged cheeses and red meat dishes.
