- 1999 Fattoria La Gerla Brunello di Montalcino – Italy, Tuscany, Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino (5/28/2009)
This is definitely a winner. Deep dark berry and plum fruit with some tobacco, earth, and lots of italo-barnyard. Just a classy wine with a velvety and silk texture and a classy finish. If there’s a wine that goes great with roast pork, this is it. Food friendly yet nicely ripe and fresh at the same time. Love this stuff. Only word of caution….I had it open for a few days, and after three days, it began tasting a little pruney…tells me that it should be had in the next 5 years or so. YMMV.
