2015 Birba, La Gerla, Tuscany

Birba, meaning little rascal in the local dialect, is the perfect way to get into the wines of La Gerla. Lovely fruit, juicy and fine, very silky tannins and finish. Love the mouth watering length, and the amazing depth to the fruit here. There’s an energy and vibrancy here that wouldn’t look out of place at double the price. This is one of the best Birbas I've tasted.

2015 Birba, La Gerla, Tuscany
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.
