Intense ruby verging on garnet. Intense, ethereal melting into scentdìs of sweet violet and iris, recalling the berries growing in the woodsFruity, dry, warm, velvety, harmonious, steady body and soul.
Pair with 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.
Enticing scents of rose, woodland berry, exotic spice, smoke and a whiff of grilled herb take shape on this perfumed red. Reflecting the nose, the already approachable palate offers sour cherry, pomegranate, star anise and hints of tobacco alongside supple tannins and bright acidity.
La Gerla's 2014 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a delicately perfumed bouquet with layers of soft berry fruit and blue flower. You get wild rose, lavender and dried violet. Wait a second or two longer, and you might recognize spicy notes of smoked clove and crushed black pepper. This is a lean to mid-weight effort with fragile aromas and a long, silky mouthfeel.
