Wine Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Vintage 2010
Format 750 ml

The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino from La Serena is very impressive. The style is bold and far­reaching yet the volume is never turned up so high as to drown out the delicate layers of black currant, balsam herb, rosemary and dried tobacco that flutter weightlessly at the back. In addition to the high quality of fruit, the wine exhibits seductive notes of spices, tobacco and dried jerky.

This excellent Brunello has not yet started its bottle evolution. Its prime drinking window won't open for another six to ten years so you'll need to be extremely patient. Andrea Mantengoli's brand name is La Serena although the name of the estate is La Rasa. His wines meet that illusive sweet point between power and elegance that is so difficult to achieve; an accomplishment that seems effortless in the exceptional 2010 vintage. Mantengoli has recently started his conversion to organic farming.

Anticipated maturity: 2017 – 2030
