Gagliole – Gagliole Colli della Toscana Centrale I.G.T. (91 tsomw points)
Sangiovese 98%, Cabernet Sauvignon 2%. This 2015 really rocks. Top red one from Tuscany from one of my fave producers.
5.000 vines per hectare.
Soil Pebble-rich clay loam.
Vinification Whole-cluster fermentation, part in barrels, part in large oak ovals
Aging Min. 18 months in French oak barrels, 20% new, 80% once-used
Bottle aging min. 6 months under controlled temperature.
My tasting notes:
In the glass an intense ruby red color.
The nose shows intense and delicate aromas of blackberries, dark cherries, cloves and licorice with hints of flowers, herbs, oak, toast and chocolate.
On the palate dry, full-bodied and concentrated with huge muscles showing flavours of dark cherries, tobacco, chocolate and vanilla. The tannins are still tight and need some time to soften. The finish is long and never ending. Salute
Perfect with steak, red meat and aged cheese.
