2008 LA FORMICA AMARONE
"This shows good grip, derived from the burly tannins and snappy sun-dried fruitlike acidity, layering dark, ripe berry and black cherry fruit with hints of tobacco and cigar box. Drink now through 2023. 800 cases made." 90 Wine Spectator
"From mid September to mid October-Withering for two months in the drying room at 450m height. De-stemming and soft pressing, maceration and fermentation for 15 days in vertical tanks. Delestage, followed by a Malolactic fermentation for 2/3 in Tonneaux of 500 liters and for 1/3 in Barrique." -Importer
"The story of La Formica began in 1893 with the construction of a small shrine dedicated to St. Vincent Ferrer to protect his 26 ha of vineyards below. Today, over a century later, the vines continue to thrive in the Cellore d Illasi and neighboring terroitory of Tregnano, at the easternmost extremities of the Valpolicella appellation. The typical Scaglia Bianca soil, along with the average altitude of 320m asl, and the Eastern exposure define the style of these wines: vibrant fruit, powerful, and always elegant." -Importer
2008 GAGLIOLE RUBIOLO CHIANTI CLASSICO
"The 2008 Chianti Classico Rubiolo comes across as fresh and vinous in its bouquet, until the full force of its rich, exuberant fruit hits the palate. This shows wonderful richness and intensity in its succulent red cherries, mint, rosemary and roses. The beautiful, fruit-driven Rubiolo is best enjoyed while the fruit is vibrant. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016." 88 points - Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate
"A very rich red, offering currant and berry notes, with hints of black pepper. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Best after 2011. 1,535 cases made. -JS" 88 Points Wine Spectator
"This red wine is made of Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. After pressing, it was stored in barrels of oak wood. Thereafter, the wine was bottled and stored for further 3 months before putting it on the market. Rubiolo is very fruity and fresh, with sweet and harmonious tannins. It should be served at a temperature of 18 degrees Celsius." -Winery
"90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot. Grapes are handpicked in wooden boxes, then in the cellar a selection is made of the best grapes. Temperature controlled fermentation with maceration of the skins from 15 to 18 days."
"One third of the wine is aged in French oak barriques (2nd and 3rd passage), 1/3 in oak vats and 1/3 in stainless steel, then blended prior to bottling. The wine undergoes an additional refinement in the bottle for 3 months at controlled temperature." -Importer
"Documents mentioning the Gagliole Estate date back hundreds of years and there are countless ancient legends regarding this property, which continues to conserve a memory of a distant time...The care of our wines has been entrusted to the talents of Dr. Stefano Chioccioli, a famous oenologist who is responsible for some of the most interesting wines to emerge from Tuscany and a diehard fan of the Sangiovese grapes. He is an expert in blending professional know-how with an artistic touch in order to produce an outstanding wine of exceptional quality." -Importer
