Brunello di Montalcino comes from a careful selection of Sangiovese grapes in the hillside town of Montalcino. Every stage of production, from the vineyard to the cellar, follows the regulations of the Consortium of Producers. It takes five years from harvest for Brunello di Montalcino to be released.

La Rasina Brunello di Montalcino is made using 100% Sangiovese grapes. The Brunello spends 24 months in 20/40 hl oak barrels and then over 6 months resting in the bottle before release.

La Rasina Brunello is mature and concentrated in the primary profile showing notes of sour cherries, fondant chocolate, sweet caramel, dates and black tea leaves. Full-bodied with soft tannins of notable beauty and a hot, spicy finish.
Pair with red meats, game, roasts, salumi and aged cheeses.
It’s a meditation wine, that to be tasted in the best conditions must be opened two hours in advance.

What the critics say

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92 pt - Made with certified-organic fruit, the La Rasina 2017 Brunello di Montalcino reveals dark concentration and sweet aromas of blackberry and summer-ripe plum. Generally speaking, vintners in Montalcino did an excellent job in the hot 2017 vintage by producing wines that are not jammy or baked. However, this wine definitely embraces a warm-vintage personality, and it flirts with the denser and softer side of Sangiovese. Oak spice and smoked tones help to flesh out this open and accessible release of 30,000 bottles. This Brunello is ready to go straight out of the gate.

James Suckling 92 pt - A big and rich Rasina with chocolate, berry and hints of meat. It’s full-bodied with round and juicy tannins and a long finish. Fresh at the end. Different and richer Brunello style from here. Drinkable now, but better in 2023 and onwards.

Have purchased twice in the last month. The quality of wine is excellent and the service is amazing. We are enjoying trying different regions and variety of wines from Italy. The Vermentino was brilliant! Well done Team.

The 12 bottles mystery box was great. I customised the order to have 10 white and 2 reds. The wine was great and reminded me of European wine. The delivery was also super fast. I ordered the wine on Saturday evening and it arrived Monday already.
