Gagliole Rosso Colli Della Toscana Centrale 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Dark in color, showing fabulous aromas of crushed blackberry and raspberry, with a hint of honeysuckle. Full-bodied, with layers of polished, velvety tannins and bright acidity and fruit. Very long and concentrated, yet refined and caressing. Superb. The best wine to date from this producer…96." WS 10/07

The farm Gagliole is a small gem that captures all of Tuscany’s beauty. The cypress-lined road and the villa evoke the peace and quiet of another era and a sense of history that stirs the soul. The magnificent, slender, dark cypress trees reach up to the sky, gently waving in the wind and producing a magical effect of light and shadow.

The 2005 Gagliole is a soft-textured, fruit-driven wine loaded with character. This blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon flows from the glass with sensual layers of smoke, leather, spices, plums, and cherries all supported by a lively vein of minerality that provides freshness. Drink this stylish, engaging red over the next decade. Anticipated maturity: 2009andndash;2019.

Intensives Purpur-Grant mit undurchlässiger Mitte. Vielschichtige Brombeerfrucht in der konzentrierten Nase, auch Pflaumen und etwas Cassis, feine Terroirwürze und dunke Schokolade dahinter. Viel Stoff und fast tintiges Extrakt im druckvollen Gaumen, kompakte Tannine und laktizeartiges Extrakt, enorme Reserven zeigend, wieder tiefgründige, schwarze und blaue Fruchtkomplexe, nun auch Trüffel und schwarze Oliven, noch jugendlich im Finale, enorme Länge. Der konzentrierteste Gagliole ever, ein Muss für jeden Weinkeller.
