Andrea Mantengoli farms his small acreage on the east side of the Montalcino hill organically, producing a focused and ripe style of Brunello that never fails to impress. 
“La Serena's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a soft and modern wine from this beautiful appellation in southern Tuscany. The bouquet offers a medley of ripe fruit, sweet spice, espresso and a touch of bitter chocolate. The presentation here is supple and smooth.” – WA 
We loved the smoothness of this wine, like the opening guitar of “Brothers in Arms” it lingers for minutes. Pick up a few bottles before they disappear.

Wine Spectator

“This is full of licorice, tar and leather aromas and flavors, along with accents of chocolate and spice. Solidly built, with a dense matrix of tannins and lively acidity. The flavors return on the lingering aftertaste.”

Wine Advocate

“La Serena's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a soft and modern wine from this beautiful appellation in southern Tuscany. The bouquet offers a medley of ripe fruit, sweet spice, espresso and a touch of bitter chocolate. The presentation here is supple and smooth. Like many of its peers made in the cooler 2013 vintage, the wine tapers out in terms of volume and texture once it hits the palate. The effect here is more downplayed, elegant and streamlined overall.”
