      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015

      La Gerla's highly charming Brunello from the dream year 2015 shines in a wonderfully intense ruby red. A dense and at the same time clear cherry nose, underlaid with blackberry, on the palate it seriously displays its great elegance, underpinned by polished tannin, which leads into an almost endlessly long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intriguing bouquet with notes of cherries and herbs; excellent structure, acidity and long-lasting tannins in perfect harmony, lots of smoothness and finesse, fresh and expansive at the same time." Vinum

      "Lots of raspberry coulis, dried redcurrants and red-plum compote here. The medium-to full-bodied palate has fleshy and succulent appeal with juicy tannins and a fruit-forward finish." James Suckling

      "Black cherry and black currant fruit is accented by tobacco, earth and mineral flavors in this sleek yet dense red. Balsamic elements of juniper, thyme and olive add depth as this cruises to a long finish. The potential lies in the excellent length." Wine Spectator

      "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." Robert Parker

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Vigna gli Angeli" Riserva DOCG 2012

      Brunello di Montalcino “Vigna gli Angeli” Riserva DOCG 2012

      Deep ruby red, aromas of red berries, cedar wood and some lime zest in the bouquet. Strong, firm body, straight tannins and a subtle acidity that promise him balance, elegant structure and a long life. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense, sparkling garnet red. Very attractive, open nose, with hints of cranberries, blackberries and ripe cherries, graceful play, slightly resinous notes in the background. On the palate it is supple in the beginning, shows beautifully ripe berry fruit, some tobacco, substantial tannin, in the finale a nice play between ripe fruit and sweet enamel". Falstaff

      "Striking autumnal sous bois type character here. This is a remarkably suave and supple Brunello Riserva that stands out in the crowd in spite of the classic red fruit character. A silky long finish." James Suckling

      "Pipe tobacco, blue flower, plum and dark culinary spice are some of the aromas you'll find on this full-bodied red. The aromas carry over to the firmly structured palate along with dried cherry, orange zest and star anise. Firm fine-grained tannins provide the backbone." Wine Enthusiast

      "Here is a dense and meaty Tusan red that flaunts its immediate power, structure and intensity. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva gli Angeli is robust and deep thanks to a generous offering of dark fruit, spice and tar-like aromas. Fruit is carefully selected for this wine, and the grapes are fermented in stainless steel. Post fermentation, the wine goes into large Slavonian oak casks for four years. The finish is soft and supple with sweet berry flavors. This wine has made an impressive jump forward in this vintage." Robert Parker

      "Bright red. Pure and very flinty nuances complement aromas and flavors of strawberry-rhubarb and wild berries on the nose and palate. Dense and juicy and boasting a focused, penetrating mouthfeel, this finishes long and clean with a very strong note of licorice. Best classico Brunello from La Gerla in some time."

    About the winemakersLa GerlaTuscany | Montalcino
    La Gerla

    On the gentle slopes below the wine village of Montalcino, Sergio Rossi has lovingly grown his vines for almost forty years. The former director of an advertising agency and owner of the small winery La Gerla has managed to quickly establish his company as a recognized Brunello producer in the wine world. Rossi skillfully combines state-of-the-art cellar technology with the wisdom of a down-to-earth winemaker. Before he took it over and restructured it in 1976, the property at 320 meters above sea level and covering a good 28 hectares belonged to the company with the distinctive name "Colombaia" (too German: "dovecote") of the Biondi Santi family, who are known for their best Brunelli.

    In the small cellar there are about twelve hectares with vines. The vineyards are located at Canalicchio in the northeast and at Castelnuovo dell'Abate in the southeast. In his daily work Rossi is supported by a top-class team. The oenologist Vittorio Fiore, for example, has been a friend from the very beginning. Alberto Passeri is an agronomist who supervises the vineyards and also acts as the director of the estate. The wines produced in La Gerla are not only regularly awarded prizes by the relevant wine guides and trade journals, but are also highly esteemed in wine shops and restaurants.

    The Tuscan farm has three wine cellars, two of which are intended for the ageing of the noble plants. The main underground cellar with optimal conditions for temperature and humidity is located in an impressive 15th century tower. It contains, among other things, the most precious bottles of the first vintage 1978 and houses the wine library. A new cellar, partly underground, contains large oak barrels of 50 and 100 hectolitres (hl) volume. There the Supertoscan Birba ages in about 50 barriques (Allier and Vosges). In the modern, temperature-controlled cellar, which is reserved for winemaking, there are stainless steel tanks with a capacity of 1,700 hectolitres. The storage, labelling and filling areas are located in the immediate vicinity. SUPERIORE.DE
