La Gerla

La Gerla

La Gerla is the name of the grape collection baskets that are specific to the Montalcino region. The terroir is extremely rich and offers an inexhaustible resource of opportunities for the development of viticulture. In 1975, Sergio Rossi created Fattoria La Gerla by replanting the vines using selection massale, a cloning technique, but not from a single mother, but from many different plants. The genetic diversity within the variety ensures the preservation of its individuality in the region. The vineyards of La Gerla are a total of 11.5 hectares, planted only with the local variety Sangiovese Grosso (also known as Brunello). The wine reveals the unique connection between the land of Tuscany and the depth of taste.

Sangiovese

Sangiovese

Sangiovese (or Nielluccio in Corsica), a dark-berried vine, synonymous with the red wines of Tuscany, and all the romanticism that goes with the territory. Sangiovese is the core constituent in some of the great names in Italian wine thanks to its ability to balance between its high acidity and firm tannic structure. Its characteristic flavours of dark cherries and black stone fruit are backed by secondary notes of dried tomato and herbs. The use of oak enriches the flavours toward plum and even wild raspberry. In Tuscany, Sangiovese is the sole grape variety permitted in the prestigious Brunello di Montalcino DOCG and provides the backbone to Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and the popular wines of Chianti.
