Gagliole - Rubiolo Chianti Classico 2017 (88 TSW)
Always a good choice this Chianti from Gagliole. I am very curious about their new cellar. I have to revisit them soon.
The new winemaking facility at La Valletta in Panzano in Chianti is now fully functioning with the latest technology in tanks and vats ( in wood,concrete and steel) as well as perfect thermal conditions relying on geothermal and solar technologies. The barrel cellar and bottling area are fully functioning as well, ensuring that the new vintages can already reap the advantages represented by their gorgeous new home, designed by the Studio Associato Mori of Greve in Chianti, which specialises in the construction of high-level cellars.
Here my notes:
In the glass a dark ruby red color.
On the medium nose aromas of ripe cherries, wild berries, blackcurrants and spices with hints of eucalyptus, earth and barrique.
On the palate dry, medium bodied with medium+ acidity and medium tannins. Nice round mouthfeel. Flavours are a recall of the nose. Nice and long aftertaste.
