La Gerla was born from the passion of itsfounder, Sergio Rossi, a successful businessman in advertising and director ofthree top European branches of a renowned agency, who falls in love with thisboth bitter and sweet territory and becomes almost a true local loving hisvineyards as if they were his children. This man, with his mischievous and livelygrin, knew how to create a little cru here in Montalcino where the mostadvanced technology unites with the knowledge of farmers and enologists toproduce excellent products that come from the Tuscan land and becomeextraordinary thanks to the handiwork of man which plays a leading role at LaGerla. The estate, which had the typical localname of Colombaio, belonged to the Biondi Santi family which achieved one ofthe best Brunellos of the area from there at the time. Sergio Rossi bought theland in 1976 and completely restructured it respecting its originalenvironment. Shortly afterwards in 1978, he created and marketed the La Gerlabrand. At La Gerla, despite big developments andmultiple changes, much importance is still given to man and his feelings;listening to what the land murmurs every day, respecting its rhythms andcatering to its needs. And maybe it is for this reason that during the lastyears La Gerla has achieved high scores in the best food and wine guides and inspecialized magazines in addition to the praise from wine shops andrestaurants. Maybe each of them, when they drink a glassof Brunello La Gerla or Birba, can sense in the bouquet, in addition to thehints of fruits of the forest or rosemary, a little bit of the heart put thereby those who work the land. Sergio Rossi passed away in July 2011, butwhat he taught all of us will remain clearly impressed in our memory: in aspecial way, his great attention to the quality and to detail, which mostlymake the difference in these wines, and his philosophy will continue to be abenchmark to allow us to continue to make exceptional wines.
