Notes from the Winemaker (2011 Vintage):

Vinification & Aging:
The grape harvest normally occurs during the first two weeks of October. The production is approximately 60 ql per hectare, because of the first selection made during august.
When alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are done, a period of 2 years follows during which the wine reaches its full ripening inside traditional woods of 20 hl and few barriques (only 10%). Finally the refinement in bottles.

Tasting Notes:
Ruby red color. Etheral, deep, balanced nose with a wide, persistent bouquet and fines touches of fruit and spices. Elegant, soft taste round and velvety to the palate.

Food Pairing: Perfectly suitable with red meat, game and seasoned cheese. Recommended with typical Tuscan dishes. Extensive ageing possible.

Alcohol content: 14.5%vol
Recommended serving temperature: 18°C

Ratings & Reviews
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"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. Best from 2023 through 2037. 2,200 cases made." - BS (Jun 30, 2018)

92 Points - Robert Parker's 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." - Monica Larner (28th Feb 2018)
