Gagliole Pecchia IGT 1999, Gagliole Rosso IGT 1999 – Wine Advocate
There are 1200 cases of the Rosso and 250 cases of the Pecchia. The 1999 Rosso is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10 % Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 18 months in French oak prior to being bottled unfiltered. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by smoky, ripe scents of black currants, cherries, and vanillin. Layered, with a plush mid-section, an enticing texture, and a firm, elegant, pure finish, this stylized wine can be drunk now or cellared for decade. The sensational, opaque ruby/purple-colored 1999 Pecchia (100 % Sangiovese) displays how unusually ripe and concentrated the 1999 vintage was in Tuscany. It boasts an opaque purple color as well as a glorious bouquet of black fruits, lead pencil, vanillin, smoke, and flowers. Dense and full-bodied, with abundant structure, outstanding purity, harmony, and overall depth, this is a powerful (14,5 %alcohol) effort with extraordinary finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020.
