Wine of the Day

2010LaSerenaRosso2010 La Serena, Rosso di Montalcino DOC, Tuscany, Italy.
This delicious Tuscan red delivers big flavors and rich texture and highlights the quality of the vintage in this famous region. La Serena’s baby Brunello is lush with red cherry, raspberry, currant and plum fruits, sweet blonde tobacco, chocolate, tangy herbs and licorice root notes. Pure Sangiovese Grosso at it’s finest and with youthful charms and energy that are seductive and vibrant. There is some fine tannins and zesty acidity to liven things up and hold focus in this lovely and interesting wine to enjoy now and for the next few years. This La Serena is a perfect companion¬† for many dishes from pizza to lamb and can just be enjoyed on it’s own, if you are in the mood for Tuscany this is a great pick.
