A red blend with great potential.
Gagliole - Valletta 2015 (90 tsomw points)
In the glass an intense ruby red color.
On the nose dark red cherries, plums, strawberry compote, with hints of chocolate, liquorice, tobacco, sweet spices, mint and coffee.
On the palate full-bodied, nicely balanced with ripe dark fruit and spices. Nice full mouthfeel with enough freshness and acidity. Nice long finish.
