Castello di Gabbiano Chianti Classico DOCG

INTRODUCTION

This wine, with its full, balanced flavour, bears honest testimony to its territory and ancient tradition. Produced according to the most traditional Chianti Classico fermentation processes, on the skins, in tanks at a 28°C controlled temperature. Natural malolactic fermentation in steel tanks. The wine is bottled one year later, after 8-10 months ageing in medium and large capacity French oak casks – from 15-50 hectolitres – most of the wine, the remaining in small barrels and steel tanks. The moderate use of the wood, the use of large casks, according to the past experience, allows the wine to preserve the most natural characteristics of the Sangiovese grape, bringing them into harmony: fruitiness, freshness and tannin.

TASTING NOTE

A red coloured wine with a bouquet of dark red berries, raspberry, and cherry are punctuated by hints of dark chocolate and terracotta. Faint florals of blue flowers and tobacco are balanced by the full body and round, juicy tannins of this wine.
