Castello di Gabbiano Chianti Classico Riserva 2011


SKU 32441


Created from the property's oldest Chianti Classico vineyards, the castle's Riserva is a wine that maintains all the most typical organoleptic characteristics of Chianti Classico, emphasised by a balanced ageing in wood. A wine that rewards the more patient consumer, since it requires a long ageing in bottles.

Wine EnthusiastA full-bodied mix of Sangiovese and 5% Merlot, this offers aromas of ripe dark-skinned fruit, dark cooking spice, menthol and tobacco. On the firm, forward palate, notes of clove, peppercorn and anise accent the core of dried black cherry. Assertive, fine-grained tannins provide the framework.

Wine SpectatorThis austere style offers sweet fruit and plenty of muscle, while notes of leather, underbrush and dried cherry are fused to a base of dusty tannins. Drink now through 2020.
