La Gerla

 

Sergio Rossi bought his first land in Montalcino back in 1976. He was passionate and dedicated to the land and also had a great sense of humor. The original property was the Colombaio estate which he bought from Biondi Santi. These vineyards are in the cooler region north of Montalcino. Later he acquired vineyards further south which gives the wines more power.

         Sergio, along with his partners Alberto Passeri and Vittorio Fiore, pay close attention to the rhythms and needs of the land. True to tradition, they use only large Slavonian oak for the Brunello. Today the estate is owned by Sergio’s wife Donatella Monforte. Over the years the estate has just gone from strength to strength giving us wines of elegant intensity.

         Today’s offer is for the 2013 La Gerla Brunello di Montalcino which, you will note, is two years older than everyone else’s current release. 2013 was a great classic vintage for Brunello and this wine has everything you want with great balance and subtle power.
