Wine Advocate 94 points - The estate?s top bottling, Pecchia, is a wine that has improved markedly over the last few years. The 2006 is fresh, vibrant and layered. A rich, textured core of ripe fruit emerges from this expansive, full-throttle wine. Today the sheer opulence dominates and the oak needs some time to settle down, but the balance is impeccable and all this wine needs is at least another year or two in bottle. Pecchia is 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot. Sadly, there are just 3,000 bottles of the 2006. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2021. (Aug 2009)

Documents mentioning the Gagliole Estate date back hundreds of years and there are countless ancient legends regarding this property, which continues to conserve memories of a distant time. A manuscript in the State Archives in Siena reveals that the son of the Langobard King Berengarius, who had fallen in love with the Tuscan countryside, bequeathed the Gagliole Estate to his wife in 994 A.D. The passing of centuries did no harm to the beauty of this estate which preserves the special character of this unique landscape.
