2004 Brunello di Montalcino, La Gerla

La Gerla, under wine consultant Vittorio Fiore, are making truly outstanding Brunello. The 2004 is traditionally made and has a ruby aspect. The nose is dominated by ripe red soft fruits, with strawberry and cherry dominant. The palate is beautifully finessed and has great balance, with a discreet yet powerful core. Expressive, yet not overt, long and full of character. The balance in this wine makes all the components appear seamless. This is very accomplished wine making. Outstanding.

2004 Brunello di Montalcino, La Gerla
La Gerla

Sergio Rossi fell in love with the vineyards of Montalcino, and bought his own estate in 1976. The land was bought off the Biondi-Santi family, the most historic name in Brunello production, and Sergio quickly set about turning his new estate into one of the best performing in the region. He sadly passed away in July 2011, so the 2011 vintage holds a special place at the estate. His work has been ably continued by his wife, Donatella, and his right hand men, Alberto Passeri and Vittorio Fiore.
