La Gerla Rosso di Montalcino

La Gerla Rosso di Montalcino 2016

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyThis Sangiovese comes from hillsides around 300m, and vines averaging 15 years, and aged 22 months in Slavonian wood, prior to 2 months in bottle before release. The wood is very firmly felt now, even four years along, with ample toasted cedar framing the cushy cassis, blackberry, and baked plum fruit. There's a thread of tobacco and worn leather throughout, while soft, plump tannins hold this chewy wine in place to a brighter finish. Give this some airtime, and enjoy with hearty Bolognese or roasted squash.Tasted: 15 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 39.00 private wine stores Producer: La GerlaDistributors: Stile Brands
