Owned and run by the Ripaccioli family for 56 years, this rising star practices classic Montalcino traditionalism with a minimalist approach to winemaking. They produce quintessential Brunello on a small scale in the north on Montosoli hill, which is known for its high altitude and silt clay and marl soil dotted with limestone and gravel. The production from this area is synonymous with sumptuously smooth and elegant wines, delicate minerality, longevity and striking aromatics.
Though no official classification system is in place, Montosoli is regarded as a Grand Cru area of Montalcino. Le Gode’s minimal intervention methodology contributes to the pure expression of Sangiovese from this iconic terroir and delivers a resulting freshness that lends structure and finesse. Their Brunello di Montalcinos are aged in Slavonian oak for three years and then six months in French oak before spending up to 8 months in bottle. The Ripaccioli family recommends a glass of this before any important decision, a recommendation we take very seriously!
The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino from Le Gode is smoky and intense, with a burst of black raspberries, savory herbs and exotic spices wafting up from the glass. It washes across the palate with silky textures propelled by vibrant acidity, as ripe berries and minerals saturate all that they touch in primary concentration. This tapers off long and heroically structured, yet with enough persistence to balance, as nuances of licorice, hard candies and balsam herbs slowly fade. Nicely done. 91pts Eric Guido, Vinous
A very fresh and firm 2017 with black cherry, lemon rind and bark character. It’s full and chewy with polished tannins and a black mushroom and cedar aftertaste. Give it time to soften. Best after 2023. 92pts James Suckling
