All wines stored at 55° and 70% humidity
La Gerla's Rosso di Montalcino is sourced exclusively from vines in the official Brunello zone. These come from the same organic, estate-farmed vineyards that supply the two Brunello bottlings but are released much earlier.
"This wine is obtained from declassified Brunello, which nonetheless follows the strict production regulations, shows characteristics of freshness and typical aromas of quality young wines, fruity and vinous notes blend with more complex autumn leaves and violet." - Producer Note
On Montalcino's north side, La Gerla was originally owned by the pioneering Biondi-Santi winery, who created the first "Brunello di Montalcino." The story behind the sale is an amusing one, with Franco Biond-Santi's disgruntled sister selling this small slice to Sergio Rosso in 1976. Sergio made immediate changes to the farming and cellar practices to upgrade everything. Today, the estate encompasses 12 hectares, all of which are organically farmed.
