One of “highly recommended” Gran Selezione wines chosen by the Decanter expert panel

Attractive display of smoky and toasty notes with crunchy black currants, violets and spices.” – Blind tasted by Susan Hulme MW, Federico Moccia and Michaela Morris

Named “Gallule” after the ancient name of the estate where it’s grown, this 100% Sangiovese is a truly remarkable wine. In Chianti Classico DOCG, Riserva wine is only produced from the very best harvests. The quality of the grapes and winemaking techniques show in the great harmony and remarkable depth of this wine – combined with the characteristic freshness and complexity you’d expect from premium Chianti Classico.

It is grown in an outstanding location, too, with the estate’s terraced vineyards opening up like an amphitheatre between the mountains behind Panzano. In this centuries-old vineyard, Sangiovese vines and olive trees are planted on terraces in the ancient tradition. People have been producing wine here since the medieval era.

Tasting notes

Deep ruby colour. This wine has extraordinary depth and intensity of aromas, with hints of redcurrant, red cherries, red plum and liquorice layered with delicious coconut and chocolate. On the palate, it is dry, with medium tannins and a full body. The wine is very fresh and packed with flavours of red fruit and rich liquorice underpinned by earthy notes for a truly lovely finish.
