GamePasta DishesRed Meat
The La Gerla estate is located at 320 metres above sea level, on the gentle slopes below Montalcino. This small wine estate has established itself as one of the great crùs in this territory in the heart of Tuscany. Sergio Rossi purchased the property in 1976 and now has 11.5 hectares under vine along with a team of experts who assist in crafting fine Brunello. This wine is aged for a total of 4 years, creating a palate that is full and dry with dark fruit and cedar, sweet spices and a long finish.
This is classic Brunello; focused and flavorful, with hints of violets and berries on the nose, a full, dry and spicy palate with a rich, slightly velvety texture and excellent acidity and persistence on the finish.
A blend of both the Canalicchio and Castelnuovo vineyards. The grapes are kept cool for 7-8 days before fermentation, which lasts up to 15 days. The wine is then transferred to large 50-100hl casks and is aged for three years, racked twice a year, then bottled. It is then aged for an additional year before release.
