Notes from the Winemaker:

Ruby red color. Ethereal, deep, balanced nose with a wide, persistent bouquet and fine 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.

Vinification & Aging:
Gemini arises from our best vineyard grapes that are harvested during the first weeks of October. The production is about 50 ql per hectare. The alcoholic fermentation occurs in special steel pools, followed by the malolactic fermentation inside French oak barriques, where the wine remains for 12 months. Then a further 12 month - refinement takes place in traditional woods of 20/40hl in which the wine reaches its full ripening.


Ratings & Reviews
96 Points - James Suckling:
"This is so rich and layered with lots of ripe cherry and wet earth aromas and flavors. Full body, chewy and polished tannins. It lasts for minutes on the palate. Impressive and persistent. Better in 2018." - (February 28th, 2016)

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"La Serena struts its stuff with the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gemini. This beautiful wine from Andrea Mantengoli is balanced, powerful and generous in terms of its aromatic delivery. The pristine and saturated color of the wine is already an indication of the high quality to follow. A seamless array of aromas includes dark cherry, spice, leather, balsam herb and crushed mineral. What the wine does do successfully is present an integrated bouquet that is finely stitched together. It offers similar smoothness in terms of mouthfeel. This is a great under-the-radar Brunello that needs more bottle aging for sure. Give it another five years." - Monica Larner (Mar 2016)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:

"Packed with black currant, black cherry, iron and wet earth flavors, this Brunello also features a wall of dense tannins. Compact and closed for now, delivering freshness and a lingering finish that demands patience. Best from 2020 through 2033. 670 cases made." – BS (Jun 15, 2016)
