Le Ragnaie winery extends over 28 hectres in the county of Montalcino which is located in the Province of Siena. Our land is coltivated with vines and olive groves and we follow the guidelines for Organic Agriculture. Run by the passion and theenthusiasm of the young Riccardo Campinoti, born in Colle Val d'Elsa and at the head of the company since 2002. The production scenario is the one of Passo del Lume Spento, which is the highest point of the whole area of Montalcino, about 600 meters above sea level: the high altitude of the old vineyards owned by Le Ragnaie brings the necessity to have late harvest compaired to the general rule of Montalcino, in the second half of October, resulting in wines with a fine flavor profile which recall the Nordic winemaking.
