Product Details

New since 2015, this extremely confident wine is made exclusively from fruit from the oldest terraces in Castellina. Pure Sangiovese and vinified in exactly the same way as the Gagliole. We think this is one of the very finest, most refined and nuanced wines from Chianti Classico with an unusually pure, varietal, finesse-rich aroma and flavour, a fabulous expression of classic Sangiovese in Chianti Classico. Barely 2,000 bottles of this wine are made and even then only in the great years! Since 2018, it has been launched as Gran Selezione

Vinous (Antonio Galloni): The 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Gallule is for the first time a Gran Selezione. It emerges from the old terraces in Gagliole’s Castellina estate. Black cherry, plum, leather, menthol and spice build as the 2018 opens in the glass. A wine of texture and resonance, the 2018 has quite a bit to offer.93/100


RP:
This organic wine has been upgraded to Gran Selezione status. With fruit from a terraced vineyard in Castellina in Chianti made with ancient stone walls, the Gagliole 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Gallule is an intricate and complicated wine to craft. Sangiovese vines range in age from 20 to 60 years old, and the final blend represents a special match of various sub-plots that changes each year. Fruit selection is key. The results are lucid and especially bright, aromatically speaking, with forest floor, wild cherry, lavender, crushed oyster shell and plum. There’s even a touch of smoked ham. Castellina tends to be cooler at night with greater diurnal shifts, and this adds pretty freshness. The wine sees 20% new oak for 16 months and a final resting phase in cement. It shows gentle tannins, and annual production is around 3,500 bottles..96+/100
