Intense ruby red in color, with a harmonious, velvety texture. This wine is delicate, fruity and fragrant.
Pair with first courses, roasted or grilled meats, particularly beef and pork.
"Intense rose, spice and earthy aromas with sage and rosemary. Excellent creamy cherry flavors with energizing minerality. Great depth and purity of fruit. Very elegant with a compelling structure. "
"A wine with sweet, ripe fruit that resembles plums and dried strawberries. Full body, with soft tannins and fresh acidity. Drink or hold."
"Full and rich, offering cherry, kirsch, tobacco and earth aromas and flavors. The ripe, refined tannins are buried under the sweetness and flesh, emerging on the resonant finish. Shows fine energy. "
"La Gerla’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino hits the palate with a blast of dark fruit, game, tobacco, licorice and incense. Wild, powerful and intense, the 2008 packs serious punch. Ideally, it is best left alone for a few years so that the tannins can soften in bottle. There is no shortage of personality in this full-bodied, authoritative Brunello. "
