Giovanni Chiappini 'Guado de' Gemoli' 2016 Bolgheri SuperioreIn Fine Spirits
70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot & 15% Cabernet Franc from the Le Grottine vineyard--planted in 1978--and the Felciaino vineyard--planted in1986.
Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 15% first use; the others second or third use. In the glass, this wine has impressive color depth. It is a perfect expression of the characteristics of the Bolgheri region. Elegance, power and complexity are the distinctive features of this wine, able to mature for many years and to refine its bouquet constantly over the years, passing from hints of ripe red fruits, vanilla and spices to extreme complexity with notes of licorice, tobacco, cedar and cinnamon. Definite, soft and long finish.
