Brunello di Montalcino

2017
Italy
Tuscany

The La Gerla Brunello is a blend of both the Canalicchio and Castelnuovo vineyards; the average age of the vines is 25 years old.

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.

"Just mid ruby. Maraschino cherry and sour cherry with a little lift on the nose and hints of cardamom pod. Hints of dried fruit but plenty of energy on the palate and with gorgeous, rich, tannins. (WS) Drink 2022-2028."
