Additional Information

Luigi Bosca Gala 4 is a modern wine conceived on the basis of experience. Deep and bright ruby red colored, with subtle and delicate aromas, ripe red fruit, spices and dried herb notes. It is smooth and balanced in the mouth, with firm tannins, and clean, fresh, juicy and gentle in the palate, with an elegant vegetal character and a persistent finish, when we can perceive its ageing in oak. It is a blend with typicity and good ageing potential.

    "A fleshy, well-structured red, with notes of dried green herb accenting the roasted plum, baked cherry and berry compote flavors. The spicy finish shows sanguine hints and chocolate details. Drink now through 2022. 2,300 cases made, 800 cases imported."
