"A wine with lovely black cherry and chocolate character. Full and silky with ultra-fine tannins and a juicy, enticing aftertaste. Better in 2014." (11/12)
"The deep ruby-colored reveals a big, spicy, internationally-styled nose of new oak, red and black currants, and smoke. Medium-bodied, clean, and supple." - Importer
"The La Gerla property is situated at 320 metres above sea level, on the gentle slopes below Montalcino. This small wine estate has established itself as one of the great crus in this territory in the heart of Tuscany, delineated by the Orcia and Ombrone valleys."
"The owner, Sergio Rossi, was formerly involved in advertising. He was the director of three European offices of a famous agency and was used to travelling for work and to losing sleep over lay-outs and jingles. These days he is almost an "ilcinese," and he loves his vineyards as if they were children."
"This gentleman, with his vivacious character, has succeeded in his goal of creating a small cru in Montalcino where the most modern technology is combined with the know-how of local men and one winemaker. At La Gerla, human intervention plays an important role is extracting excellent Tuscan products from the land."
"The farmhouse, with the characteristic name "Colombaia" was once the property of the Biondi Santi family. They used it to make one of the best Brunellos in the area. Sergio Rossi purchased the property in 1976 and restructured it with care and attention to detail. Not long afterwards, in 1978, he created the trademark La Gerla."
"Today the estate has 11,5 hectares (28,41 acres) under vine and large modern cellars complete with the latest technology. Sergio Rossi is flanked by a united team of people that have helped him to achieve his goal; the winemaker, Vittorio Fiore, who has been with the estate from the start and is both a friend and a trusted professional, Alberto Passeri, agronomist and director of the estate, Marisa the cellar boss, Luca the vineyard overseer and Sonia who deals with the estate administration."
"Last but not least, Seriano, the first "contadino" to work on the estate, has returned to the property. At La Gerla, as well as the development and continual evolution of our technology, we still give great importance to the people and the sentiments that are behind our wines and, for this reason, we couldnât give up on a local man, a real "ilcinese" with land and wine in his blood!"
"Perhaps this is one of the reasons why, in recent years, La Gerla has received consensus and high points in the best guides and trade publications, as well as appreciation in wine stores and restaurants. Could it be that our clients, when they taste a glass of Brunello La Gerla or Birba, perceive in the bouquet, along with the notes of berries and vanilla, some of the love of those that made the wine?" - Winery
