- Score: 97 Vintage 2016 Vinous Media The 2016 Pecchia is one of the best wines I have ever tasted from Gagliole, maybe the best. It possesses tremendous intensity in its aromatics and flavors, yet also remains incredibly refined. Black cherry, plum, leather, licorice and spice all build effortlessly. The 2016 spent 18 months in small French oak followed by a few months in stainless steel. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 93 Vintage 2016 James Suckling Magazine Blackberries and toasted coconut on the nose. Violets, too. Medium-to full-bodied with creamy tannins that are polished and medium in density. Still needs to lose some of the new-wood barrel character but shows pleasing density and texture. Drink in a year or two. Try after 2023. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 92 Vintage 2015 Vinous Media The 2015 Pecchia is 100% Sangiovese from the highest portion of the estate's vineyards in Panzano. Fermentation in French oak adds volume, body and texture. Succulent black cherry, plum and lavender add nuance, but Pecchia is a wine that remains heavily marked by its fermentation in oak, which gives quite a bit of concentration and depth. The 2015 is a very good wine, but it is not especially varietal. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
