2006 Fattoria La Gerla Brunello di Montalcino

2006 Fattoria La Gerla Brunello di Montalcino is an awesome wine. I have been a fanboy of La Gerla for many many years…ever since my old friend Ron Duncan introduced me to a 1997 La Gerla, as a matter of fact. And this vintage will be as good as that 1997 one day. It is approachable now but it has solid structure, beautiful acidity, supple and plush red fruit and plum, and a finish that is killer. It will pair with a variety of foods, but I am serving it with beef and summer grill onions tonight which will be a beautiful pairing. Fatty beef, the creamy and roasted flavor of the onion and the acid of the La Gerla to cut through all of it. Stupendous.

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.
