I introduced Marco Mantengoli of La Rasina to all of you with my offering of his 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Il Divasco a few years ago. Stars aligned, and Marco generously opened his cellars to us. La Rasina's parcels of Sangiovese Grosso are planted to the east and slightly south of Montalcino, where Marco routinely meets with his neighbors – Cerbaiona, Luciani – to compare notes. Organically farmed hillside vineyards capture the morning's intense rays, while evening breezes from the valley guarantee optimal diurnal temperature variations, ensuring intensity of fruit that's beautifully balanced by precise acidities.


Lots of berry and mushroom aromas with hints of earth and cigar box. Full-bodied, deep and structured with lots of fruit in the center palate, framed by tannins. A serious and beautiful wine. Best ever? Better after 2021.
