Made for us by Andrea Mantengoli of La Serena, whose vineyards are located on Montalcino’s eastern flank, this is an example of true Brunello at its best. Stylistically La Serena’s wines echo those of its neighbours, such as the more celebrated Cerbaiona next door. The wines display a great drinkability even when young, all while respecting the identity of their piece of Montalcino terroir.
Bright in appearance, with ripe red cherry and herbal aromas on the nose. The palate is ripe and poised, with fresh acidity that adds definition to the mid-palate. As is characteristic of this wine, the tannins are finely wrought.
