La Serena Brunello di Montalcino 2010
97 points James Suckling: Intense aromas of dried citrus and meat with hints of rose bush and fresh rosemary. This is full body, with full, velvety tannin and a decadent and rich finish. Fascinating flavors of spice, citrus and meat. Loads of fruit. From biodynamically grown grapes. Better in 2016. (12/1/14)
Full Bodied robust Brunello.
External Reviews for La Serena Brunello di Montalcino
Ruby red colour. Etheral, deep, balanced nose with a wide, persistent bouquet and fines touches of fruit and spices. Elegant, soft taste round and velvety to the palate.
Mint and eucalyptus aromas give way to dried cherry and soy flavors in this firmly tannic Brunello. Sweetness and acidity drive the long finish of fruit, spice and mineral. Should be a great bottle in time. Best from 2019 through 2036. 1,700 cases made.
Andrea Mantengoli’s family has owned the original La Serena property since 1933. In 1988 Mantengoli began estate bottling and proceeded to grow the estate from 1 to 8.5 HA. His is currently in the conversion process to become certified organic and should be complete by the 2013 vintage. La Serena is aged exclusively in 20 HL French oak for 24 months. - Winery
I am absolutely impressed by the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino from La Serena. The style is bold and far-reaching (the alcohol clocks in at 15%) yet the volume is never turned up so high as to drown out the delicate layers of cassis, 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 spice, 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.
