2010 Fattoria La Gerla Brunello di Montalcino

2010 Fattoria La Gerla Brunello di Montalcino. One of my very favorite go-to Brunellos in virtually any vintage. The winemaking is relatively traditional, the price is always very fair and in good vintages, the wines are silly good. This bottle was very pretty cherry, spice, tobacco and balsamico with lovely freshness. The wine paired really nicely with some salsiccia and salad. At just under $30 this is stupid good.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
