La Serena

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 clayey, calcareous soils, benefit from longer ripening periods and higher levels of acidity than their lower altitude counterparts. Fermentation takes place in large, temperature controlled, stainless steel vats, before being racked into large (20 hectoliter) French botte for 2 years. After aging in oak, the wine is aged in bottle for another 12 months before being released.

Wine Advocate

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is beautiful. A large-scaled, opulent wine, the 2007 captures the personality of the vintage while retaining fabulous balance and proportion. Layers of dark fruit, mocha, spices and new leather build effortlessly to the huge, palate staining finish. This is a fabulous showing. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

Score: 94+. —Antonio Galloni, April 2012.

Wine Enthusiast

Smoky overtones of barbecue and pipe tobacco fill in the background and provide a platform for all the busy cherry and ripe berry notes presented at the front of the nose. Dark, thick, inky concentration. It's a big, bold style with loads of savory spice, black pepper and smoked bacon. Drink after 2015.

Score: 92. —Monica Larner, January 19, 2012.
