Gift set from Gagliole in Chianti Classico: Decanter Platinum Medal-winning Super Tuscan Wine and Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The Wine

Made only in the very best years, from the very best grapes, Pecchia is a truly exceptional single-varietal Sangiovese red wine. Gagliole’s organic vineyard is located in Panzano, at an altitude of 500 metres. It is set on the south-facing slopes of the famous “Conca d’Oro” (the golden chalice) – a magnificent mountainous amphitheatre. Sangiovese grapes are fermented in slowly revolving new French oak barriques, which rotate six to eight times per day for 45 days. This gently extracts the deep colour and ripe tannins, while avoiding drawing the bitter “green tannins” into the wine. Pecchia is aged for 18 months in oak, and spends a further year in bottle to further develop its delicate and balanced flavour.

The Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Deep emerald in colour, this extra virgin olive oil is exquisitely aromatic with a touch of bitterness. This Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced by the Gagliole winery at their age-old mountainside estate in Castellina. It’s full of fresh herbaceous aromas, has a dense texture and the eye-catching colour is absolutely enchanting.

The price includes the wine and the oil.
