Gallule - the ancient name of the property – is also the label of Gagliole's Chianti Classico Riserva. This wine is made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes grown in centuries-old terraced vineyards on the ancient vineyard of the estate. These landmark protected terraces were already famed for their grapes in medieval times. This is a wine of great harmony and remarkable depth, rich and complex - qualities that only very old Sangiovese vines can produce.

The palate is so unbelievably polished that it’s quite startling. Fine, firm tannins and umami flavors lurk through layers of glimmering fruit and carry right through to the long, polished finish. Drink now or hold.
