La Rasina Brunello di Montalcino 2012 (750ml/12)
About La Rasina
There are fewer and fewer of them, but this estate is still a true Montalcino born, family run estate. La Rasina was founded in the early 1970’s by the grandfather of the Mantengoli family, Santi. Later managed by Vasco, his son, and now by Marco, his grandson, the estate shows the dedication and excellence of an endeavor kept in the hands of one hardworking family over many years. La Rasina is located on the fine southeastern slope, or morning side of Montalcino in the Brunello DOCG area. ...New York, New Jersey, California, Massanois Imports
Ruby red color with fruit and spices on the nose; strong and persistent. Best enjoyed two hours after opening.
Vinous MediaSaturated red-ruby. Musky and flinty aromas and flavours of minty blackcurrant, licorice and ink. Pliant and generous, with a plush middle and repeating musky notes on the broadly tannic, flinty finish. - Ian D'Agata
James Suckling“A wonderfully precise and clear red with cherry, plum and floral character…”
