||Brunello di Montalcino
La Serena Brunello Riserva ‘Gemini’ arises from the winery’s best vineyard, harvested during the first weeks of October. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in special steel pools, followed by the malolactic fermentation inside French oak barriques, where the wine remains for 12 months. Then a further 12-month refinement takes place in large barrels of 20/40 hl.
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.
