      Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2017 (BIO)

      La Serena's Rosso di Montalcino is a real treat, especially for those who are looking for the Holy Grail of Sangiovese purism. This wine focuses exclusively on the quality and fundamental purity of its primary fruit. The aromas of wild berries, bitter almond and violet are of radiant intensity. Definite and not without some pressure on the palate, endowed with beautiful tannins and a complex finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2012

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2012

      Radiant ruby, vibrant aromas of dark cherries, black berries, cocoa and leather. Fruity, juicy and bright at the base, dense and with a solid backbone of acidity and tannin. Then powerful dark fruit aromas, complexity and an immense length. A brilliant Brunello. SUPERIORE.DE

      "So much crushed dark fruit such as raspberries and blueberries. Hints of sandalwood, too. Full-bodied, chewy and powerful with ripe tannins and a flavorful finish. Just a hint of lemon rind." James Suckling

      "Dark and deep in appearance, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino bears many of the hallmark characteristics of the vintage. Sangiovese produced smaller berries and thicker color extraction in this vintage. This Brunello does indeed show more muscle and brawn, but it does so with an impeccable sense of balance and persistence. I cannot but admire this achievement. The quality of fruit is succulent and rich, and there are many pretty aromas of dark cherry, pressed blackberry, underbrush, cola and licorice to earn your admiration. Its textural fortitude is equally admirable." Robert Parker

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 (BIO)

      Impressive once again the Brunello from the almost unknown and now certified organic winery La Serena. In the bouquet fine layers of cassis, balsamic herbs and a hint of tobacco. Powerful and primary fruity on the palate, fleshy and with excellently integrated tannins, which will provide increasing elegance as the wine matures in the bottle. A harmonious and well composed red from A to Z with exciting ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Gemini" Riserva DOCG 2012

      Brunello di Montalcino “Gemini” Riserva DOCG 2012

      Exceptionally refined Brunello Riserva with aromas of dark fruit, dried flowers, coffee and nutmeg, but also sweet, plush notes of rum balls, tobacco and leather. Powerful and excellently structured on the palate, long and velvety with a wonderful balance of fruit, acidity and tannin. Very perfect! SUPERIORE.DE

      "This wine pours from the bottle with luscious, dark intensity. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gemini offers a much more robust and grounded textured when compared to the 2013 Brunello Annata. You can taste the elevated summer temperatures in this vintage, and you can see it in the thick concentration and dark appearance of the wine. Indeed, there is a bit of sweet stickiness on the finish, thanks to all that ripe fruit and dark cherry richness." Robert Parker

      "This is an upbeat and forthright style with cedary oak wedged into aromas of ripe red plums and cherries with gently earthy complexity. The palate has a very punchy core of grippy tannins that deliver rich black cherries and abundant, woody spices." James Suckling

    About the winemakers
    La Rasa | La Serena
    Tuscany | Montalcino
    La Rasa | La Serena

    As early as 1933, Azienda Agricola La Rasa Sangiovese was already cultivating Sangiovese. In 1988, the small family business located in the Montalcino area was renamed La Serena. In the very first year under the new name, the brothers Andrea and Marcello Mantengoli also bottled the first 2,700 bottles of Brunello "La Serena". In the following period, the production figures could be increased to about 30,000 bottles, since after originally one hectare of vineyard area, today there are already about 10 hectares available for the cultivation of wine. More than 70 percent of the three wines produced at the estate are destined for export.

    While Andrea, who is more practically minded, does the field and cellar work on the estate, Marcello, as the creative head of the company, is mainly concerned with sales. The south-east-facing vineyards of the family estate, which has increasingly been run according to biodynamic rules for some years now, extend to the east of Montalcino at the foot of the Cerbaie hills. In this area the ground is a little bit firmer than in other areas. Besides sand and clay, the soil also contains lime. The vineyards reach an average altitude of 350 metres and are planted exclusively with Sangiovese. Since 2013, the vineyards and winery have been certified organic.

    The new wine cellar, designed by Marcello and built on a hillside, is immaculately and functionally equipped. It was completely insulated with cork plates. A geothermal system ensures a cooler indoor temperature in summer and a warmer indoor temperature in winter. The air flows through a large network of pipes and leaves the rooms through a series of chimneys. The cellar holds 20-hectolitre barrels and barriques in which some of the Brunello wines are aged.

    As it is well known that quality begins in the vineyard, the Martengoli brothers cooperate with the agronomist Ruggero Mazzilli. Since 1997, the estate owners have also relied on the wine knowledge and advice of oenologist Paul Caciorgna. SUPERIORE.DE
