Aromas of dried chili and salt with hints of oyster shell. Dried berry and cherry. Sweet cherry. Full body, chewy and very intense, very dried fruit character. Opens to a beautifully silky textured finish. Better in 2017.

This may be the best base Brunello I have tasted from La Gerla. The wine is distinguished by a heightened sense of uniformity, especially where the bouquet is concerned. You can easily identify tones of cherry, spice, leather cola and licorice that are typical of the Sangiovese grape. Wait a few minutes, and the wine begins to shows finely etched tones of grilled Mediterranean herb, ash and dried ginger. The nose is penetrating and deep with etched mineral tones at the back. This lovely wine also exhibits silky, long tannins on the smooth finish. 94+ - Monica Larner

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.
