"Enticing scents of rose, woodland berry, exotic spice, smoke and a whiff of grilled herb take shape on this perfumed red. Reflecting the nose, the already approachable palate offers sour cherry, pomegranate, star anise and hints of tobacco alongside supple tannins and bright acidity. Drink through 2024. -KO"

"La Gerla's 2014 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a delicately perfumed bouquet with layers of soft berry fruit and blue flower. You get wild rose, lavender and dried violet. Wait a second or two longer, and you might recognize spicy notes of smoked clove and crushed black pepper. This is a lean to mid-weight effort with fragile aromas and a long, silky mouthfeel. Production is 20,000 bottles strong."

"Vivid red. Aromas of red cherry, citrus, sweet spices and wet stones on the enticing nose. Fresh, zingy blood orange notes complicate red cherry, stone and herb flavors on the simple palate, where a touch of salinity promotes salivation. Finishes long and refreshing on the delicate, mineral finish. Drink up soon while it offers easy accessibility an lots of early, juicy appeal."
