Fattoria La Gerla
Rødvin - Sangiovese - 75 cl - 14,00 %
95 point, Wine Advocate: "Now we're talking. I tasted the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino after tasting the other samples from La Gerla, and it's amazing how clearly and convincingly that brawny Brunello character comes through. This is a robust and precise wine that shows dark berry fruit, red currant, spice, licorice and grilled herb. I love the way that all that beautiful Sangiovese intensity comes together with immediate focus and clarity. Nice job."
94 point, Wine Spectator: "Black cherry and black currant fruit is accented by tobacco, earth and mineral flavors in this sleek yet dense red. Balsamic elements of juniper, thyme and olive add depth as this cruises to a long finish. The potential lies in the excellent length."
94 point, Vinous.com: "La Gerla's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous, showing depths of earthy moist soil, minerals and hints of animal musk up front, giving way to crushed strawberry and cherry, getting spicy with lifting minerals yet retaining a rich character throughout. On the palate, silky textures are matched by cool-toned acids and refreshing moist mineral tones, as zesty cherry and cedar come forward. It's so balanced and smooth, with high energy lasting into the long finish, showing saturating spice and salty minerals, yet remaining cool-toned and precise. The 2015 is a beautifully balanced wine that’s firmly rooted in the earth."
93 point, JamesSuckling.com: "Lots of raspberry coulis, dried redcurrants and red-plum compote here. The medium-to full-bodied palate has fleshy and succulent appeal with juicy tannins and a fruit-forward finish."
92 point, Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of wild berry, violet, new leather and star anise fill the glass. Firm and boasting finesse, the linear palate features ripe Morello cherry, mature cranberry, licorice and dried Mediterranean spice set against taut polished tannins. It closes on a roasted coffee bean note. "
Farven er intens rubinrød med granatrøde reflekser. Der er præcision i bouquet’en, som er æterisk og byder på en liflig blanding af blomster og krydderier. Her er et potpourri af violer, iris, kanel, tobak og læder. Smagen er harmonisk med en rigdom i frugten, fløjlsbløde tanniner og en vedvarende finish. Dekanter vinen mindst en time, før den skal skænkes. Nyd denne enestående Brunello til retter med rødt kød, vildt og modne oste.
