La Serena Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva Gemini 2013

Sangiovese  |  Italy


Collectors, connoisseurs, and lovers of opulent, vinous bliss (that covers everyone, right?)...we are overjoyed to be sharing this 95-point rockstar Brunello from one of the holiest sites in Montalcino. La Serena Brunello di Montalcino – always one of Tuscany’s finest! Nearly 30% off and ready to drink!

The La Serena estate has always produced highly acclaimed wines, and this is their top Brunello, 100% sangiovese, 30-year-old vines right next to the winery, parked in the most illustrious grouping of top Brunello producers in all of Tuscany! We’re talking Cerbaiona, Casanova di Neri, and even Biondi Santi’s legendary Il Greppo estate! This is normally the realm of $200+ sangiovese, but we have a few cases of this powerful 2013 vintage at less than $80 a pop. But be warned, there’s not much to go around– this is a grab-it-while-you-can moment here on Invino. 

But the wine! There’s so much to talk about here… we’ll start with the striking balance of sheer power and elegant complexity. Rich, brooding, dark, brimming, and percolating with dark cherries, raspberries, and plums, but also spearmint, blood orange, bay leaf, and black tea – with savory/earthy notes of sandalwood, iron ore, and sun-baked clay…WOW! So much to LOVE here! This is a charmer, if there ever was one. An impressive Brunello that will last another decade, easily! Read Galloni’s 95-point review, and grab this while we still have it, you’re going to wish you got more. 

About the Producer

La Serena dates back to the 30s and is surrounded by legends (Cerbaiona, Casanova di Neri and even Biondi Santi's Il Greppo estate). The property is organic, and as you'll read in the reviews below is gorgeously made, with power and elegance not often seen in Brunello, tons of cool cassis and juniper, long, intense and refined.

95 Vinous -
The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gemini shows a ripe yet earthy display of forest berries with spicy florals, notes of moist soil, crushed stone and hints of animal musk. On the palate, soft textures envelop the senses in a coating of sweet and sour red fruits and spice with a citrus twang, as tannins slowly mount, yet the Gemini maintains freshness beautifully through zesty acids and inner florals. The finish is long, turning more toward the youthfully tart side, with saturating spices and grippy tannins clenching the senses. It has many years to go before all of the elements come into balance, but once they do, pure beauty. I tasted the 2015 Gemini over the course of two days and it just kept getting better.
