Gagliole Gagliole Rosso di Toscana 97 1997

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Oak, tea leaf, kale, smoky, earthy, scotched earth. Little sweetness, little leather, little brett, very fine texture, bright and clear. Lovely cranberry-edged, red apple acids, raspberry, iron, spice, faint sage. A certain delicacy here, fairly tannic on the finish. Raspberry, earthy, mineral-tinged finale. This has a nice roundness, a sweetness on the palate, lovely ripeness, balance and finesse. 91

With it's darker, richer ruby coloring one would expect this to be much more intense than the Sangioveto, fortunately not. This opened with a lightly oaky note, a touch toasty and nutty with an underlay of fresh mossy greeness and a hint of spicy white pepper. In the mouth this was elegant with excellent balance, still youthfull with solid acidity and a nice bed of tannins which where just a touch drying. Fruity on the atack and through the mouth with notes of roast sour cherry and red currant gaining a bit of depth with hints of oystershell and dried mace before transitioning into a tight, focused finish with some grape pip astringensy, fine length, and a lightly smoky, light raspberry finale. With dinner this gained rusty and talcy notes on the nose over a base of of roasted cherry fruit and top notes of flowers and tobacco. In the mouth this offered up a pure core of fruit with fine acid balance, really lovely and bordering on zesty with a return to almost sweetness, fine interplay. A bit lighter bodied than most but with a fine tobacco and spice finish with a raw, bitter almond finale. This may be faulted for lacking a bit of power or complexity but is really very fine Sangiovese and I could drink this almost everyday. 2008-2014
