Tasting Notes

The Licin bottling from Fillipo Gallino was fermented in steel and then aged for four years in 25 hl, old Slavonian casks.This is a glorious red wine that drinks like a baby Barolo. Fragrant and complex on the palate and drinking well today. Enjoy with a mushroom pizza.

The Licin is a perfect pairing for skirt steaks, lamb burgers, and venison stews when deer is in season. If Filippo Gallino's Licin were a person, I imagine that this deep, brooding wine would be the goth girl I knew in high school who showed me Fleetwood Mac.
