La Serena Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 'Gemini' 2012

2 units available online.
Product description

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.

Perfectly suitable with red meat, game and seasoned cheese, recommended with typical Tuscan dishes.

94 Points - James Suckling

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. Drink or hold.

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.
