La Rasina Brunello di Montalcino 2013
A third-generation family estate, La Rasina is located on the southeastern slope or morning side of Montalcino in the Brunello DOCG. This is a small property on rolling hills with roses climbing over the old walls of the main house. They farm organically and attend to every detail of the harvest and winemaking by hand. The wine delivers plenty of ripeness, and layers of tobacco, spice and dark berry fruit. One of the must-buys from this classic vintage!
JS96: "A wealth of ripe fruit with spice, tobacco, cedar and plum aromas that follow through to a full body, chewy and dense tannins and a ripe and delicious finish. A solid and stoic young red. Give it three or four years to soften. Made from organic grapes."
