La Gerla's top wine is the single vineyard cru gli Angeli. This Brunello Riserva, which is only made in select years, comes entirely from a one hectare parcel of old vines from the original Biondi-Santi site, located between 270 and 320 meters above sea level. This hillside vineyard occupies a privileged position at the estate and consistently offers beautiful and healthy fruit. The wine is kept for 4 years in 50 hectoliter Slavonian oak casks and kept for an additional year in bottle before being released.

Wine SpectatorWonderfully fruity on the nose, with strawberry and raspberry. Slightly jammy. Full-bodied, soft and round, with juicy tannins and a long, fruity, creamy vanilla aftertaste. Best after 2010.
