Giornata 2016 Gemellaia
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.
Blend 60% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese, 15% Petit Verdot.
