La Serena Rosso di Montalcino 2006
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.
External Reviews for La Serena Rosso di Montalcino
I am impressed with the minerals, blackberries and dried flowers on the nose. Lavender too. Full body, with masses of fruit and tannins, yet refined and polished. Incredibly decadent. Made from organic grapes. Please don't touch this until 2015. James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 La Serena Brunello di Montalcino 750ml
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is an exciting, full-throttle wine bursting with dark fruit, mocha, chocolate, spices, roasted coffee beans and spices. The intensity of the fruit builds towards the enveloping, round finish. Despite its size, the wine... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
