La Gerla 2013 Brunello di Montalcino

Description

"The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is elegant, balanced and bright. The pretty luminosity of the wine's appearance helps to underline this positive impression. The bouquet is nuanced and layered with dried fruit aromas that segue to spice, tar and balsam herb. You get sassy aromas of licorice, tar and cola on the close." - Robert Parker 94 Points

"This opens with intriguing aromas of smoke, grilled herb, pressed violet and a whiff of strawberry compote. The luminous, savory palate doles out crushed raspberry, juicy Marasca cherry, clove and licorice alongside bright acidity and taut, ultrarefined tannins. A saline note lingers on the close. It's ethereally elegant and will age well for years. Drink 2021–2033." Wine Enthusiast 93 Points

"Bright red. Pure and very flinty nuances complement aromas and flavors of strawberry-rhubarb and wild berries on the nose and palate. Dense and juicy and boasting a focused, penetrating mouthfeel, this finishes long and clean with a very strong note of licorice. Best classicoBrunello from La Gerla in some time." - Ian D'Agata (Vinous) 93+ Points

"Camphor and eucalyptus aromas and flavors mingle with cherry, vanilla, earth and milk chocolate notes in this dense, beefy red. Muscular tannins line the finish. Stays fresh and long." Wine Spectator 92 Points
