“The La Gerla estate - once part of Biondi Santi, the legendary winery credited with the creation of Brunello - produces both Brunello and this fresh, vibrant Rosso, marked by a lively acidity and crisp red fruit.”

Alberto Passeri, general manager and winemaker of Fattoria La Gerla, noted that a short aging period means a livelier wine - a key attribute of a good Rosso. “Rosso has to be fruit forward,” Passeri said. He finds the term “baby Brunello” rather condescending. “For me and for La Gerla, the Rosso di Montalcino has always been considered an important wine,” he said. The 2020 La Gerla Rosso di Montalcino, made from declassified Brunello vineyard fruit, was certainly impressive: concentrated with a richness and depth of flavor balances by vibrant acidity and crisp red fruit

A quintessential Rosso, this elegant, delicious red hits all the right buttons. It opens with heady aromas of wild berries, blue flowers and baking spice while the savory, elegant palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, blood orange, star anise and white pepper alongside polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it bright and balanced.
