The La Serena estate has belonged to the Mantengoli family since the 1930s, and they started making wine in 1988, when brothers Andrea and Marcello entered the family business. What began as a one-hectare farm has since grown into nine hectares, with about six of those under vine, dedicated exclusively to Sangiovese for Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino. The zone of production, Torrenieri, is in the northeast corner of Montalcino at about 400 meters above sea level. The soil here is similar to the Pertimali/Montosoli Cru areas, but is slightly less compact, providing wines with structure but perhaps more approachability in their youth than their neighbors. Winemaker Paolo Caciorgna performs fermentation with temperature control. The wine then matures for 30 months (8-12 months in new barriques and the remaining months in large 20-50 hl oak casks. Finishing in the bottle for 8 months. 500 cases produced.
