Giornata 2017 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 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.
