THE COMPANY

La Rasina was founded in the ‘70 by Santi Mantengoli, descending from a family of farmers operating since 1930. At the end of the ‘80 his son Vasco changed the business route from agriculture to viticulture. In 1997 Marco Mantengoli, a young oenologist, acquired the management of the winery, combining new ideas and modern technology with his father’s ten-year experience. The estate covers 49 hectares, 14 of which are vineyards and 5 olive trees. The company is located on the north-east side of Montalcino and its vineyards are aged between 10 and 40 years all raised with low spurred cordon. In this land, Marco produces 3 different versions of Brunello: the classic one; the Riserva, dedicated to his father Vasco and the Selection, in memory of his grandfather, launched in the market in 2020 for the first time, which represents a great example of Marco’s style. A real farm, certified organic since 2017, managed with passion and competence, that well represents the winegrowing of Montalcino.

Toscana

Montalcino

Montalcino has the dry, warm climate of the Tuscan coast, and as for the soils, in the best vineyards south of the town, they are characterized by rocky matrices and less fertile than those in the best areas of Chianti. The result is the most concentrated and long-lived form of Sangiovese in existence in the world. Altitudes range from 150 meters in Val d'Orcia in the south, where the most powerful wines are produced, to 500 meters just south of the village, where the wines are more elegant and aromatic.
