La Gerla Brunello di Montalcino 2011
93 JS, 90 WS, 91 RP, 92 V
Aromas of spice, bacon, smoked meat and ripe fruit follow through to a full body silky red wine. This Brunello is incredibly balanced even if it has a very complex structure: succulent red cherry, tobacco, mint, leather and licorice flesh... Sexy and opulent. Drink or hold it...if you can!
