I like the spices, berries and hints of wet earth on the nose. Dried plums, too. Full-bodied, with amazingly intense, exotic, decadent fruits. Velvety-textured and very flavourful. Gorgeous, sexy style to this. Best wine... I like the spices, berries and hints of wet earth on the nose. Dried plums, too. Full-bodied, with amazingly intense, exotic, decadent fruits. Velvety-textured and very flavourful. Gorgeous, sexy style to this. Best wine ever from here. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is beautiful. A large-scaled opulent wine the 2007 captures the personality of the vintage while retaining fabulous balance and proportion.

A large-scaled opulent wine the 2007 captures the personality of the vintage while retaining fabulous balance and proportion. Layers of dark fruit mocha spices and new leather build effortlessly to the huge palate staining finish. This is a fabulous showing. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. Andrea Mantengoli is a producer whose star is clearly on the rise. These new releases from Mantengoli are all standouts. 94+ --- Antonio Galloni

Deep bright red-ruby. Vibrant aromas of dark cherry dark berries cocoa powder and leather. Juicy bright and primary with serious density and a solid spine of acids and tannins giving thrust to the powerful dark fruit... Deep bright red-ruby. Vibrant aromas of dark cherry dark berries cocoa powder and leather. Juicy bright and primary with serious density and a solid spine of acids and tannins giving thrust to the powerful dark fruit flavors. Finishes with broad dusty tannins and terrific building length and lift. This really grabs the palate and won't let go. An eminently ageworthy 2007. 93+

Smoky overtones of barbecue and pipe tobacco fill in the background and provide a platform for all the busy cherry and ripe berry notes presented at the front of the nose.

Smoky overtones of barbecue and pipe tobacco fill in the background and provide a platform for all the busy cherry and ripe berry notes presented at the front of the nose. Dark thick inky concentration. It's a big bold style with loads of savory spice black pepper and smoked bacon. Drink after 2015.

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.
