Tasting Notes

Tenimenti Ricci  (also known as Capanne Ricci) is a consistent producer from the Sant’Angelo in Colle subzone in the southern, warmer part of the Montalcino appellation.

100% Sangiovese, Ricci Brunello is ruby red in color with slight garnet hues. Intense, soft, and spicy on the nose. Great tannic structure in the mouth. Well-balanced and elegant on the palate with a long finish. Pairs well with roasts, grilled meats, game, and aged cheeses.
