A rather traditional, tight red. From organically grown grapes. Better after 2024.

Black cherry, black currant, licorice, vanilla and spice flavors are in step with the solid structure. Balanced, ending ripe and long on the finish. Best from 2024 through 2045. 700 cases made, 100 cases imported. — BS

Its...   The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gemini is fruit-forward and a bit extroverted yet impossible to ignore. It boasts a striking mix with intense raspberry preserves, exotic spices and dusty dried florals. Its textures are soft and fleshy, creating a creamy feel to its radiant, ripe fruit profile, while maintaining balance through brisk acids and grippy tannins. The 2015 Gemini takes a turn toward austerity, finishing structured and grippy; yet through it all, sweet violet florals resonate. This may be a full-throttle and extroverted effort, but it’s well balanced and sure to have a lot of fans. Important to note that this was checked in on, and held up beautifully over the course of three days. -- Eric Guido

Label

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.

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.
