Winemaker’s Notes

“Gemellaia is a barrel selection from our finest lots in the winery. Super Tuscan inspired, it melds Sangiovese’s acid and tannin structure with the soft, generous fruit of Merlot and Petit Verdot. The Bordeaux varieties undergo lengthy extended macerations to refine tannins and spend a further 22 months in oak for complete development.”

Tasting Notes

“With Gemellaia, we draw from modern Italian wines for our inspiration, utilizing the highest percentage (roughly 50%) of new barriques in our lineup. The 2016 is classically structured to last, but already quite expressive with a nose of amaretto, licorice, earth and light caramel. The palate is a seamlessly layered collection of black cherry, espresso, and sweet tobacco.”
