Dark-cherry and floral aromas with citrus and dried-lavender undertones. Full body and firm,chewy tannins with a solid structure and length. Needs time to soften and come together. Better after 2021.

Enticing aromas and flavors of cherry, plum, earth, iron and blood mark this smooth, harmonious Brunello. Rich and dense, with chalky tannins. This will need some time to integrate fully. Best from 2023 through 2042...   Enticing aromas and flavors of cherry, plum, earth, iron and blood mark this smooth, harmonious Brunello. Rich and dense, with chalky tannins.

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.
