  • Score: 95 Vintage 2016 James Suckling This is a great Chianti Classico with an overload of floral aromas, such as violets and rose petals, in addition to blackcurrants, tar, asphalt and vanilla. Full-bodied but very subtle and restrained on the palate with a finely woven web of tannins and a long, taut finish. Drink from 2023. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 95 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate Extremely fine tuned and precise, the 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Gallule offers depth and a long succession of delicate nuances with dark fruit, balsam herb, licorice and freshly tilled potting soil. This is complete and beautiful wine executed in a very classic style. This wine is all about the smaller details, best accentuated with a Porcini mushroom risotto. The Sangiovese grapes are harvested from an ancient terraced vineyard in Castellina in Chianti. A precious few 2,000 bottles were made. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 93 Vintage 2016 Wine Spectator The black cherry and black currant fruit is tightly reined in by firm, chalky tannins in this sleek red. Iron, wild Tuscan herbs and tobacco notes join the flavor parade as this converges on the lingering aftertaste. All the elements are here, but needs a year or two to come together. Best from 2022 through 2040. 150 cases made, 35 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2016 Vinous Media The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Gallule, 100% Sangiovese from Castellina, is creamy, ample and expressive, with lovely textural depth and resonance. Dark red cherry, plum, mocha, spice and new leather all build in a super-expressive, inviting Riserva loaded with class and personality. The 2016 spent 14 months in neutral small French oak barrels.

  • Score: 93 Vintage 2015 Vinous Media A new wine in the range, the 2015 Chianti Classico Gallule is 100% Sangiovese from the estate's nucleus of vineyards in Castellina. Lifted, perfumed and silky, the 2015 speaks to grace above all else. Like all of these new releases, the Gallule is restrained and understated. Sweet red cherry, spice, rose petal and mint give the wine its bright, nuanced personality. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
