(1998 Vintage) Gabbiano Chianti Classico DOCG is a blend of 93% Sangiovese and 7% Canaiolo-Colorino grapes. Vinified with the skins, this wine is then aged in oak barrels of varying ages and sizes for 18 months. Ruby red in color and full bodied, the wine exhibits pleasant aromas of berries and plum. It is a bold and spicy on the palate, with rounded blackberry accents and smooth tannins. Chianti Classico is a perfect accompaniment to meats and red sauces.
