La Serena Brunello di Montalcino 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

La Serena’s Brunello di Montalcino comes from 17 year old vineyards near the famed Montesoli Cru. The vineyards, planted at 350 meters above sea level on clayey, calcareous soils, benefit from longer ripening periods and higher levels of acidity than their lower altitude counterparts. Fermentation takes place in large, temperature controlled, stainless steel vats, before being racked into large (20 hectoliter) French botte for 2 years. After aging in oak, the wine is aged in bottle for another 12 months before being released.

  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

Lots of dried fruits here, almost raisins, with hints of flowers. Full body, with chewy and round tannins and juicy fruit. Intense finish. Muscular. Need two or three years for the tannins to soften. Made from biodynamic grapes. James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 La Serena Brunello di Montalcino 750ml

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is beautiful. A large-scaled, opulent wine, the 2007 captures the personality of the vintage while retaining fabulous balance and proportion. Layers of dark fruit, mocha, spices and new leather build effortlessly to the huge, palate staining finish. This is a fabulous showing. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. - Robert Parker 94+ Points Deep, bright red-ruby. Vibrant aromas of dark cherry, dark berries, cocoa powder and leather. Juicy, bright and primary, with serious density and a solid spine of acids and tannins giving thrust to the powerful dark fruit flavors. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins and terrific building length and lift. This really grabs the palate and won't let go. An eminently ageworthy 2007. - Stephen Tanzer 93+ Points Smoky overtones of barbecue and pipe tobacco fill in the background and provide a platform for all the busy cherry and ripe berry notes presented on the nose. It’s a big, bold style with loads of savory spice, black pepper and smoked bacon. Drink after 2015. - M.L. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 92 Points
