    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

      A deep ruby red with radiant reflexes. Bouquet of spices, herbs and ripe fruits. Round body with silky tannin. Once again one of the best in its price range - charming and delicious until the long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, sparkling ruby garnet. The first notes are exuberantly spicy, with hints of cloves and cardamom, then fine raspberry, exciting. Also on the palate full of spices, opens with a grippy, fine-meshed tannin, builds up well, full pressure." Falstaff

      "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." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is elegant, balanced and bright. The pretty luminosity of the wine's appearance helps to underline this positive impression. The bouquet is nuanced and layered with dried fruit aromas that segue to spice, tar and balsam herb. You get sassy aromas of licorice, tar and cola on the close." Robert Parker

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Vigna gli Angeli" Riserva DOCG 2011

      Brunello di Montalcino “Vigna gli Angeli” Riserva DOCG 2011

      Gli Angeli is the result of the strictest selection in the La Gerla vineyards. It is vinified only in the best years in Riserva quality and there are only 6,000 bottles on the market. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, rich garnet red. Opened with intense notes of saffron, slightly pickled peaches, then blackberry and goji berry. Salty and juicy on the palate, shows a lot of shimmering fruit, finely woven tannin, builds up for a long time, in the finale firm pressure." Falstaff

      "Good bright red. Fresh redcurrant, violet, rose petal and flinty minerals on the perfumed nose. Juicy, lively and intense, with lovely clarity and sappiness to the delicate red berry, red cherry and smoky mineral flavors. Very silky on the long, ripely tannic finish." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "Black cherry, plum, spice and tobacco flavors are the hallmarks of this polished, sophisticated Brunello. Beautifully balanced, with soft tannins that provide pillowy support. Stays vibrant on the lingering finish." Wine Spectator

      "Intense aromas of Mediterranean scrub, chopped herb, underbrush and eucalyptus pave the way. Smooth and juicy, the palate doles out succulent raspberry, ripe black cherry, cinnamon, vanilla and crushed mint while velvety tannins provide the elegant framework. It's already approachable but will offer wonderful imbibing for several years more." Wine Enthusiast

    • 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 winemakers
    La Gerla
    Tuscany | 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
