This red is made of Merlot and Sangiovese. The wine is an intense ruby red in colour and is characterized by a complex and intriguing range of aromas: ripe black fruit, liquorice, spices and tobacco leaf. On the palate it is silky and enveloping with a fine density and persistence. The finish shows notes of ripe black fruit, liquorice, coffee, and dark chocolate.

The 2017 Valletta is bright, effusive and beautifully lifted. Red fruit, spice and floral accents all come together in a sensual, wonderfully inviting wine from Gagliole that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. Valletta is a blend of Sangiovese from Castellina and Merlot from Panzano.

Offers an immediate impression of fruit, but this is also delicate, with a graceful frame that belies the solid backbone of tannins on the finish. Balanced, needing time to knit together. Wild herb, iron and tobacco notes accent the aftertaste. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2027. 666 cases made, 75 cases imported.
