Tasting Notes
‘This red is made of Merlot and Sangiovese. The wine is an intense ruby red in colour and is characterized by a complex and intriguing range of aromas: ripe black fruit, liquorice, spices and tobacco leaf. On the palate it is silky and enveloping with a fine density and persistence. The finish shows notes of ripe black fruit, liquorice, coffee, and dark chocolate.”
94 Points Antonio Galloni – “The 2017 Valletta is bright, effusive and beautifully lifted. Red fruit, spice and floral accents all come together in a sensual, wonderfully inviting wine from Gagliole that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. Valletta is a blend of Sangiovese from Castellina and Merlot from Panzano.”
92 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – “A blend of equal parts Merlot from Panzano and Sangiovese from Castellina, the Gagliole 2017 Valletta is a cheerful wine with a plump and dark core of cherry and blackberry. Sometimes understated simplicity can make the biggest statement, and that’s the main takeaway here. This is a crisp and linear red that puts most of the emphasis on freshness and purity. Honestly, this is all you need next to a simple spaghetti with basil and fresh tomato sauce.”
92 Points James Suckling – “Cherries and strawberries with floral and cedar undertones. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a bright, vivid finish. It’s linear and long, especially for this hot vintage. Drink or hold.”
91 Points Wine Spectator – “Offers an immediate impression of fruit, but this is also delicate, with a graceful frame that belies the solid backbone of tannins on the finish. Balanced, needing time to knit together. Wild herb, iron and tobacco notes accent the aftertaste. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2027. 666 cases made, 75 cases imported.”
