Winemaker Notes

Intense, ruby red. The nose is deeply spiced with notes of cloves, cinnamon, plums, licorice and black cherries aromas. Hints of chocolate and walnuts. On the palate all the elements are wonderfully balanced, with dense, sweet tannins. Its taste will make you perceive the typical minerality that is present in the rich terroir of Gagliole.

Perfect with steak, red meat and aged cheese.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Gagliole (90% Sangiovese blended with Cabernet Sauvignon) is a dark and hearty Tuscan red with thick layers of black fruit, spice, leather and fragrant pipe tobacco that peel off with steady determination. The palate is marked by similar intensity and there is enormous plushness and richness that is both memorable and impressive. It’s a great effort from a fantastic vintage that promises a long life ahead. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028.

Gagliole is a small gem that captures all of Tuscany’s beauty. Judiciously cultivated and groomed, small tracts of land created elegant geometric figures on either side of the impenetrable hills. Here, at 1,640 feet above sea level, vineyards of Sangiovese mature under the rays of the sun thanks to splendid exposure to the south-southwest. The age of the vines (3-30 years) is a ­testament to the painstaking process of reintegration that has taken place here.

Monika and Thomas Bar, a noted gallery manager and a Swiss lawyer and banker, respectively, decided to settle in Gagliole in order to return to Tuscany where they met. Over the years, their love of good wine became a true passion that has blossomed into the production of native and international varietals that express the character of their microclimate.

The yellow-brownish color of the soil up close becomes the distinct shades of argillaceous loam: it is the argillite that embraces and nurtures the vines. This mineral-poor soil contains just the right amount of humus to give the wine soft, pleasant tones. The delicate balance between soil and climate is the ideal model for crafting elegant wines that reflect this great winemaking patrimony. The cellar is marked by a balance between the modern and the ancient that allows the fruit to be transformed into a great wine.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
