Gagliole "Galgliole Colli della Toscana Centrale" 2015

Sangiovese / Cabernet Sauvignon
A still red wine from the Toscana region of Italy.


Complex and attractive. Dark fruits, tobacco leaf, spices.

Tasting Notes

The 2015 Galgliole Colli della Toscana Centrale from Gagliole bouquet is attractive and complex with dark fruits, tobacco leaf and spices.

On the palate a distinctive toasty character is there with coffee and dark chocolate.

The finish is long and has a bitter profile.

I would happily open another bottle in 8 to 10 years to check on the evolution of this bottle.

Sangiovese

Wine making grape

Sangiovese is a red Italian wine grape variety named after the Latin sanguis Jovis, which means “Jupiter’s blood.” Though it is native to most of central Italy, from Romagna to Lazio, Campania, and Sicily, it is best known outside of Italy as the sole component of Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino, as well as the primary component of the blends Chianti, Carmignano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Morellino di Scansano, though it can also be used to make varietal wines like Sangiovese di Romagna

Cabernet Sauvignon

Red-wine variety of grape

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most well-known red wine grape varieties in the world. It is grown in nearly every major wine-producing region, in a wide range of climates, from the Okanagan Valley in Canada to the Beqaa Valley in Lebanon. Cabernet Sauvignon rose to popularity as a result of its use in Bordeaux wines, where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The grape spread through Europe and into the New World, settling in places like California’s Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Napa Valley, Hawkes Bay, South Africa’s Stellenbosch region, Australia’s Margaret River and Coonawarra valleys, and Chile’s Maipo Valley and Colchagua. It was the world’s most widely planted premium red wine grape for most of the twentieth century, before Merlot overtook it in the 1990s. By 2015, however, Cabernet Sauvignon had reclaimed its place as the most widely planted wine grape, with 341,000 hectares (3,410 km2) under vine globally.
