La Gerla Brunello di Montalcino 2007
Ripe fruit and red cherry, with spice, cinnamon and wood shop aromas, characterize the youthful bouquet of La Gerla's latest Brunello. But there’s also a pretty mineral tone that gives the nose backbone and definition. It is delicate and feminine in the mouth, with elegant flavors of wild berry and blue flower that will surely grow in intensity as the wine evolves.

Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. Its close proximity to the San Francisco Peninsula and the San Pablo Bay is instrumental in controlling the climate of the area. The winds from the San Pablo Bay create a cooling effect ideal for producing wines with crisp acidity and balanced flavors.
This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing [Pinot Noir] and Chardonnay, and more recently, Old-World style Syrah. While more delicate than most wines from neighboring regions, these are firmly structured, complex, and full of flavor. Carneros is also an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of [Champagne].
