La Serena Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gemini 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gemini opens with *knock-out aromatics* that lead to expressive layers of ripe red fruit, flowers, spices, licorice and tobacco. The balance of fruit, acidity and tannin is fabulous. Freshly cut roses, spices and licorice reappear to frame the finish. *This is an exceptional, totally refined Brunello* from Andrea Mantengoli. The Riserva was aged in a combination of casks and smaller French oak barriques. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. Andrea Mantengoli is a producer whose star is clearly on the rise. These new releases from Mantengoli are all standouts." --The Wine Advocate

  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
