About

90

"A Rosso with a lovely texture of ripe, refined tannins and juicy berry and plum character. Some orange peel too. Medium to full-bodied, with a long silky finish. Very pretty. Drink now." (07/12)

90 Wine Spectator

"Plum, cherry and earth flavors mingle in this rich red, which is full of bass notes, but shows balance and a mineral element on the long finish. Drink now through 2017. 1,700 cases made. -BS" (10/12)

Wine:
"Sweet spices, plums, toasted oak and licorice are some of the notes that emerge from this expansive Rosso." - Importer

Producer:
"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. 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 Birba, perceive in the bouquet, some of the love of those that made the wine?" - Importer
