R1,123.00

Region: Tuscany, Montalcino

Tasting note:

“Intense ruby verging on garnet. Soft, warm and velvety, harmonic, rich in fruits and persistent in the mouth. Intense, ethereal melting into scents of sweet violet and iris, with hints of spices such as tobacco, cinnamon and leather. Great food pairings include red meats, preferably wild game; to serve, store sideways at room temperature at least 24 hours beforehand, cork two hours in advance, decant and serve in decanter.” – Winemaker

“Very pretty ripe and dried fruit with blackberries and sweet cherries. It’s full-bodied with depth of fruit and creamy, polished tannins. Extremely compact and long. Pure fruit at the end. A gorgeous wine. Drinkable now, but better after 2022.” – James Suckling

“Elegant, tight and streamlined, the La Gerla 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a savory and slightly spicy bouquet. More than fruit, the first tones you get focus on tar, smoke, licorice and mixed herbs. This wine offers a very Mediterranean personality with elegant mineral notes that come out in a second wave. The wine goes through a relatively quick fermentation with about 15 days of skin contact followed by 36 months in large Slavonian oak casks. With more time in the glass, it opens to blue flower, lilac, dried berry and crème de cassis.” – Robert Parker
