The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino presents an alluring seductive bouquet of sweet herbs licorice crushed flowers mint and minerals. This mid-weight graceful Brunello needs time in the glass to show off its pedigree but it is a classic understated wine graced with exquisite finesse. The wine puts on weight with air filling out its frame very nicely with waves of fruit that caress the palate all the way through to the harmonious resonant finish. This substantial firm Brunello will require patience but its potential is amply evident even today. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. --- AG

Aromas of licorice and blackberries follow through to a full body with silky tannins and a fruity finish. This is a refined and silky young wine. Give it two to three years of bottle age.

Winery

La Gerla

La Gerla was born from the passion of its founder, Sergio Rossi, who fell in love with the “bitter and sweet territory” of the land, which he purchased from the Biondi Santi family in 1976. He completely restructured the property with respect paid to its original environment, and shortly afterwards in 1978, he created the La Gerla brand.

A small winery, in just a few short years it has become a great cru of the Tuscan region, surrounded by the Orcia and Ombrone Valleys. The property extends over a total of 11.5 hectares, complemented by modern cellars equipped with the latest technological advancements. The vineyards at La Gerla lie right on the Montalcino hill at 320 meters above sea level, just where the slope begins to soften.

Sergio Rossi passed away in July 2011, and the continuity of La Gerla fell to his wife Donatella Monforte. Bringing her managerial experience from the fashion world to the estate, today she continues her husband’s dream and passion.
