Chose this bottle on a whim. Was told this won’t compete with the big boys, but I grabbed it anyway and was rewarded!! Lovely acid framing some fruit and herbs. Super pretty.

Love half off bottle night!
Fruit is fading, graphite and metallic notes are front of palate, 30 min in decanter so far.

Strawberries and raspberries and a dash of Christmas spice. A light cake? Not exactly. This Gloria might continue adding complexity in bottle. Not quite trumpeting-angels good, but very pleasant for sure.

Bright ruby red. A touch green and earthy on the nose. Medium tannins (5.5/10) and medium plus bodied. Notes of unripe cherries and earthiness on the palate with a long finish. This is a baby that needs some time to develop. Give it a few years in the bottle before opening. Drink from 2019 till 2030. (89+)

The 2014 Gloria is a bold, powerful wine. Dark cherry, smoke, licorice, tobacco and underbrush effortlessly fill out its frame. Ample and richly textured, the 2014 offers remarkable depth, power and pure pedigree. Pomegranate, blood orange and iron add further complexity on the finish. This is a superb showing. Tasted two times. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous)
