Brunello di Montalcino Riserva la Serena Gemini 96js 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

96JS James Suckling - www.jamessuckling.com, 2/28/2016 - 96-Points:"This is so rich and layered with lots of ripe cherry and wet earth aromas and flavors. Full body, chewy and polished tannins. It lasts for minutes on the palate. Impressive and persistent. Better in 2018." 95WA Monica Larner - The Wine Advocate, 3/4/2016 -95-Points: La Serena struts its stuff with the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gemini. This beautiful wine from Andrea Mantengoli is balanced, powerful and generous in terms of its aromatic delivery. The pristine and saturated color of the wine is already an indication of the high quality to follow. A seamless array of aromas includes dark cherry, spice, leather, balsam herb and crushed mineral. What the wine does do successfully is present an integrated bouquet that is finely stitched together. It offers similar smoothness in terms of mouthfeel. This is a great under-the-radar Brunello that needs more bottle aging for sure. Give it another five years."

  La Serena is a wine estate in the Montalcino district in Tuscany, Italy. The estate has been in the Mantengoli family since the 1930s, but wines weren’t produced until the late 1980s by brothers Andrea and Marcello. The vineyards, planted with 100% Sangiovese, are located in the Torrenieri zone, in an elevated section in the northeast corner of Montalcino. The wines are produced with the consultation of oenologist Paolo Caciorgna. Both the Brunello and Rosso di Montalcinos have gotten rave reviews and continue to impress in recent vintages. La Serena is poised for full organic certification starting in the 2013 vintage.  Read less
