I was looking for something different and the Gaglioppo grape is very different from what I'm used to. However, I wouldn't call this a finer wine but rather just unique. It's earthy, leathery nose does not inspire, but considering the price it is quite smooth. This one definitely needs a decant and it seems to improve with time. I wonder if the 2006 might have been better.
