La Rasina Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Il Divasco 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.
Wine Advocate"Dark and brooding, [...] delivers upfront power and ripeness. This is a warm vintage Brunello with soft and syrupy aromas of blackberry preserves and candied cherry."
James Suckling"There's a very impressive sense of depth and richness on the nose of this Brunello Riserva. It shows ample dark cherries and sweet, earthy aromas. The acidity illuminates the mellow, fine-grained tannins and dark cherry flavors. Holds long and even." - James Suckling
