2016 Brunello di Montalcino, La Gerla, Tuscany

We love La Gerla's wines for their understated class, that becomes even more evident after a few extra years in the bottle. The rich core of fruit will soften here, and the wine will last decades: if you can keep your hands off it. A wine you'll want to have in your cellar.

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.
