New leather, forest floor and ripe woodland-berry aromas make their way to the forefront together with whiffs of violet and pipe tobacco. Full bodied and firmly structured, the palate offers finesse and concentrated flavors including crushed raspberry, morello cherry, licorice and truffle framed in tightly knit, polished tannins. Drink 2023–2030. KERIN O’KEEFE

"Now we're talking. I tasted the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino after tasting the other samples from La Gerla, and it's amazing how clearly and convincingly that brawny Brunello character comes through. This is a robust and precise wine that shows dark berry fruit, red currant, spice, licorice and grilled herb. I love the way that all that beautiful Sangiovese intensity comes together with immediate focus and clarity. About 40,000 bottles were released. Nice job. You gotta love the way Alberto Passeri describes this successful vintage on the market now: "The 2015 vintage was an exciting one under every point of view, offering us restful nights of sleep and energized days." La Gerla did not produce its Brunello di Montalcino Riserva gli Angeli in 2014. That was a difficult vintage that I assume made for many sleepless nights."
