Winemaker's Notes

Deep red in color. Very clean, opulent aromas, with notes of ripe red fruits evolving into delicate spice and floral perfumes. Powerful and velvety in flavor with a fleshy and sustained finish and refined tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"This estate, owned by Angelo Gaja, makes two expressions of Brunello. The 2008 Sugarille shows sharp acidity, but this wine offers more balance and harmony overall. It opens with beautiful floral tones of pressed violets and wild berry fruit while unfolding oak-driven aromas of spice and chocolate in a more subdued manner."
92 Points

"Floral, cherry and spice aromas and flavors mingle in this red, which is pure, if a bit oaky, lent structure by a combination of wood and grape tannins. Fine length. Best from 2017 through 2033."

For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
