2006 La Gerla Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1074259 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino presents an alluring, seductive bouquet of sweet herbs, licorice, crushed flowers, mint and minerals. This mid-weight, graceful Brunello needs time in the glass to show off its pedigree, but it is a classic, understated wine graced with exquisite finesse. The wine puts on weight with air, filling out its frame very nicely, with waves of fruit that caress the palate all the way through to the harmonious, resonant finish. This substantial, firm Brunello will require patience, but its potential is amply evident, even today. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark La Gerla offers a spectacular Brunello that hits all the right marks in terms of intensity, beauty and staying power. This is an opulent and rich wine with plump blueberry flavors followed by chocolate fudge and sweet exotic spice. You can either cellar it or enjoy it within the next few years. *Editors' Choice* Inner quote mark (4/2011)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of licorice and blackberries follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a fruity finish. This is a refined and silky young wine. Give it two to three years of bottle age. Inner quote mark (1/2011)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep red. Discreet notes hints at cherry pit, dried rose and Indian spices. Densely packed but not at all overly sweet. Rather powerfully built but a bit clenched today. Not really sexy yet, but has the chewy, tactile back end and firm, ripe tannins to reward seven to ten years of cellaring. Quite long and youthful on the aftertaste. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (8/2011)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This floral- and cherry-scented red is elegant and supple, picking up a tobacco note on the palate. Moderate tannins emerge on the finish, where a spicy accent lingers. (BS) Inner quote mark (7/2011)
