Winemaker Notes

This red wine contains Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. After pressing, it was aged for 16 months in barriques of french oak wood. Thereafter, the wine was bottled and refined for further 6 months before putting it on the market. Gagliole is well structured and balanced with dense, sweet tannins.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This winery is headquartered in Castellina in Chianti, although the Sangiovese used in the 2016 Gagliole actually comes from the sun-kissed Conca d'Oro vineyard in Panzano in Chianti. This expression offers depth and delicate finesse, showing a long succession of small berry fruits, cassis and wild rose. The mouthfeel reveals balanced touches of acidity, power, structure and concentration. Indeed, these are the elements of a classic vintage and a classic Tuscan red.

JS 93
James Suckling
Attractive aromas of crushed berries with hints of flowers. Medium to full body. Firm and chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Toasted oak showing. Age will pull this together. Try after 2021.

Gagliole Winery Video

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.
