    Winemaker's Notes:

    #24 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Beautifully perfumed, this red features rose, peony, black currant, tar and licorice aromas and flavors. This is ripe and dense, with well-integrated tannins and acidity that funnel the fruit and savory notes into a long aftertaste. Complex and intense. Best from 2013 through 2026. 1,600 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    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 is already pretty open. I don’t think this will be a long-term ager, but it should drink very nicely over the medium term. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.
