The Donna Review
So we laid this down since 2018 and decided that the recommendation for cellaring is 4-7 years and as a 2016 this was definitely 6 years.
On opening wasn’t to sure as the colour was on the browner side – which some times isn’t a good sign. But in saying that – this has cellered well and is still slightly acidic but not longer sharp as before.
It was well worth cellaring this wine as it has mellowed and lost its acidness and is still smooth and full of flavour.
Man with no palate Review
I remember the first time we had this wine because it was nice and they say on the back of the label you can cellar it. So I dashed out to get the last bottle in the bargain bin.
As for that cellaring we have pretty much left it to the last minute. Without a shadow of a doubt, this is the best $5 wine I have ever had and ever likely to have. There is still a hint of acidness but it is really smooth and ridiculously tasty.
I wish I could still find another bottle somewhere. The score is reflected as really the best $5 bottle – and patience of cellaring.
Gigi Sangiovese 2016 Bottle label Description
Aromas of fresh plum, cherry, strawberries and fig explode from the glass. While the plate displays a clean tart acid with a light tannin finish. This wine is perfect for consumption now and will cellar for up to 4-7 years.
