2006 Castello di Gabbiano Chianti Classico Riserva

Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) Deep ruby in color, the 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG displays floral notes of sweet violets combined with hints of cherry jam. The palate is full-bodied and complex with rich flavors of blackcurrent and plums that merge harmoniously with notes of fragrant woods and licorice that extend through the long finish

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) "Rich and round, sporting black cherry, raspberry and spice flavors, with dense yet ripe tannins for support. This is balanced and long, presenting a fresh, mineral-laden aftertaste. Drink now through 2023." 92 Points. Wine Spectator

    Bold, full flavor; unlike a typical chianti.
