Winemaker Notes
“With Gemellaia, Giornata draws from modern Italian wines for the inspiration, utilizing the highest percentage (roughly 50%) of new barriques in their lineup. The 2017 places Sangiovese at the forefront for the first time in years, while still harnessing the richness and immediacy of Merlot and Petite Verdot. This new Gemellaia has very complex aromatics highlighted by sarsaparilla, sage, preserved cherries, coconut. The palate is round with soft tannins and a long finish seeped in intense flavors of red fruits, light espresso, vanilla, and sweet tobacco.”

93 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:
“This is the only wine in the Giornata portfolio that is aged in new oak, and it’s styled like an IGT from Tuscany. The 2017 Gemellaia is a blend of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot aged 22 months in 50% new oak. Medium ruby-purple in color, it offers ripe blue and red berry fruits with accents of leather, dried violet, citrus peel and graphite. The medium to full-bodied palate is ripe, spicy and amaro-laced with a grainy, super fresh frame and long, layered finish.”
