This Tuscany white is a blend of Procanico 60%, Chardonnay 30%, Malvasia 10%
Gagliole – Bianco 2014 (89 tsomw points)
In the glass this wine shows a pale yellow color, light golden.
I like the bouquet which shows aromas of melon, peaches and apricot with nice balanced hints of barrique.
On the palate solid and light creamy. It is full-bodied, mouth-filling and round. Perfect balanced with a quite impressive aftertaste. Soon I will taste the 2015! Looking forward for that!
