2009 Brunello di Montalcino, La Gerla, Tuscany

The Canalicchio vineyard is halfway up the hill of Montalcino, and this meant La Gerla was in a position to deal well with the heat of August 2009. This Brunello displays freshness and elegance, balancing out the richer, riper flavours from the warmer areas of the estate. This is an excellent example of terroir shining through a difficult year, and the result is a Brunello that will peak early and already provides superbly balanced, elegant flavours.

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.
