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.

Drink now or hold.
