The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is full-bodied and rich in its dark red fruit mocha spices and French oak. The wine reveals terrific density in a round style that is supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins. Warm notes from the oak give the wine an additional level of volume on the finish. In 2004 Mantengoli vinified the Brunello in rotary fermenters and wood uprights. The wine spent two years in French oak casks and barrels. Unfortunately I was not able to taste the top of the line 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Gemini which was originally scheduled to be released next year. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

Label

Winery

La Serena

The Mantengoli family has owned the La Rasa property in Tuscany since 1933, but it wasn’t until 1988 that Andrea Mantengoli and his brother Marcello became involved in the production of high quality Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino wines. Starting at just 1 hectare of vineyard, the first production of their “La Serena” range was only 2,700 bottles of Brunello. This has since been increased to 30,000 bottles as the organic vineyard has been extended to 8.5 hectares.
