Overview
The Giorgio Zaglia Winery produces quality wines in Friuli, in the far north-east Italy, in Friuli D.O.C. wines area, where the existence of a consolidated winemaking tradition is unquestionable. The Estate, stretching across a surface of about 30 hectares, is situated in the municipalities of Precenicco and Pocenia, in the south-east of the province of Udine between the Stella and Tagliamento rivers, where the clayey soil, rich in the mineral salt, and the near Adriatic Sea, producing warm and salty air currents, create an extraordinary micro-climate which is ideal for wine growing.


History
Date Founded: 1970
Owner: Giorgio Zaglia
Winery Philosophy: The wines are grown according to low environmental impact standards, the grapes are picked strictly by hand and vinification, based on refined physical techniques rather than chemical, is implemented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. Eventually, fining and ageing both in steel and barrique give birth to a series of balanced white and red classic wines from Friuli, with appreciated genuine and noble features.
Established by Aldo Zaglia in 1970, the winery was taken over by his son Giorgio in the first half of the Eighties. After taking a degree in Agricultural Sciences, he brought in some remarkable changes both in the vineyards and the cellar, getting together old tradition with news technologies. Respect for the environment and constant quality research are the main principles which have been leading Giorgio Zaglia since then. In 1995 he started replanting the vineyards, increasing planting density per hectare, adopting short pruning and shrewd thinning and the most updates and accurate methods needed to obtain wines that enhance the characteristics of the territory where they originate.

Long Shadows Pirouette 2016 (Magnum)

Long Shadows Pirouette Meritage is made from 68% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Merlot 8% Petit Verdot 6% Cabernet Franc 3% Malbec

Philippe Melka, named one of the top nine winemakers in the world by Robert Parker, used small lots from Washington State's finest vineyards to craft this enticing red blend.

Like the last several growing seasons, 2016 was another hot year that required extra care in the vineyards. Building on the success of our canopy managment program over the last few vintages, we worked with growers throughout the season to encourage growth of the canes and outside foliage to protect against the sun while opening up the fruit zone for even maturation. Warm temperatures in the fall hastened ripening, but the Columbia Valley's cool autumn nights protected the grapes' acidity, yielding bright, vibrant wines that will drink well in their youth but also promise to bring enjoyement to those who cellar. 

A variety of fermentation methods were used to enhance complexity and richness in this classic Bordeaux blend. Hand-harvested Cabernet was fermented in 400L French oak barrels that were gently rolled throughout fermentation to integrate the oak with refined, dark fruit flavors and give the wine its silky mouthfeel. All other varieties were fermented in traditional stainless steel tanks, with select lots enjoying longer skin contact to enhance the wine's dark color and mid-palate. The finished wine was aged 22 months in French oak barrels (75% new) before bottling unfiltered and unfined.

Review:

"The 2016 Pirouette is made by Philippe Melka and it's a total blockbuster based on 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and the palate Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec that was fermented in barrel and aged 22 months in 75% new oak. Crème de cassis, blackberries, toasted spices, cedar, and forest floor notes all emerge from this deep, rich, opulent red that has sweet tannins, a thrilling texture, no hard edges, and a monster finish. This is another best-to-date from this estate and it's an awesome wine."  -Jeb Dunnuck 97 Points
