      Tasting Notes
      The La Serena estate has belonged to the Mantengoli family since the 1930s, but they did not start making wine until 1988, when brothers Andrea & Marcello entered the family business. What began as a 2.4 acre farm has since grown into 21.6 acres, with about 14.4 of those under vine, dedicated exclusively to Sangiovese for Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino. The zone of production, Torrenieri, is in the northeast corner of Montalcino at about 400 meters above sea level. The soil here is similar to the Pertimali/Montosoli Cru areas, but is slightly less compact, providing wines with structure but perhaps more approachability in their youth than their neighbours.
      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 clay, calcareous soils, benefit from longer ripening periods and higher levels of acidity than their lower altitude counterparts.

      "Here is a wine that flaunts its warm vintage characteristics with confidence. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is soft, richly layered and enormously plump from the start. It literally bursts out of the glass. The bouquet is redolent of cherry, pressed rose petal, spice and chocolate dustings. The complexity does not reach the high levels of previous vintages, but what the wine does offer is a fundamentally direct and opulent style that can be enjoyed in the near term." 91 Points.( Monica Larner, erobertparker.com, March 2016 )
