About Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle

Located on the Maremma Coast near the family's Guado al Tasso estate in Bolgheri, Le Mortelle was once part of a larger estate called La... Badiola, created in the nineteenth century when the Duchy drained the marshy areas around Grosseto. The Antinori family purchased Le Mortelle in 1999, and the estate’s name, which comes from the region’s plentiful wild myrrh, signals the family’s green commitment. Le Mortelle isn’t merely certified organic — it also sports a state-of-the-art cellar facility constructed with natural materials and erected under the earth. Built into the side of a hill, Le Mortelle’s cantina is barely visible, but its three-story structure allows for gravity to move the wine from pressing to fermentation to aging barrels, which reduces energy and treats the wine with tender loving care. Le Mortelle occupies almost 670 acres, with 420 acres under vine, and it boasts a variety of soils that range from sandy and loamy with clay and silica to rocky, pebbly, and mineral-rich. While Le Mortelle’s range of wines is small, the impact is great, and it’s only a matter of time before this Antinori estate achieves the renown it deserves.

About Le Ragnaie

Le Ragnaie spans almost 70 acres (about 38 planted to vine) that teem with wildlife, birds, and natural beauty. Riccardo and Jennifer Campinoti purchased Le... Ragnaie in 2002, and since that time, the estate has been on an upward trajectory. Le Ragnaie gets its name from “ragnatela,” the Italian word for spiderweb and the shape of traditional bird-catching nets, a nod to the desperate poverty that Montalcino experienced prior to its wine renaissance, when locals relied on catching birds for food. Fortunes changed, however, as Brunello found a following. Le Ragnaie has three vineyard parcels: Le Ragnaie in the central zone; Petroso, located just below the village of Montalcino; and Castelnuovo dell’Abate, located in the South of Montalcino in the foothills of Mount Amiata. Many of Le Ragnaie’s acres once rested above the elevation that DOCG allowed for Brunello, but in 2016, Italian wine’s ruling body raised elevation limits, so Le Ragnaie can now use its high elevation vineyards to craft its high-toned, finessed, and deeply elegant wines. The Le Ragnaie team is deeply committed to preserving the natural beauty of Montalcino and grows its grapes organically and biodynamically, while using very traditional vinification techniques in making its superb Brunello bottlings.
