2004 La Gerla Brunello Di Montalcino
"The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino opens with a gorgeous bouquet of dark raspberries, flowers, tobacco and French oak, that melds seamlessly onto the palate, where this sweet, layered wine reveals its considerable pedigree. Deceptively medium in body, this expansive, vibrant wine offers tons of fruit supported by ripe, firm tannins. The finish is long, sweet and fresh. La Gerla's Brunello will benefit from a few additional years in bottle, after which it should drink well to age 20, if not considerably longer. It is a gem. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024."
