Castello di Gabbiano is an historic winery in the heart of the Chianti Classico.  The first historical references to Gabbiano dates from the 11th century, when work began on the square tower, which was built to defend one of the most important communication routes between Florence and Siena.  The construction of the cellars, whose vaulted structure demonstrates their use for wine production, began in 1124. In that epoch, the castle belonged to one of the most important banking families of Florence, the Bardi.  Today Castello di Gabbiano is an important part of the Chianti Classico landscape and local wine tourism.  It is a thriving estate with 147 hectares of vines planted on clay limestone soil.  It has two of the best and highly trained viticulturalist and enologist in the country overseeing their production and this shows in the consistency and quality of their Sangiovese based wines.     

Tasting Notes

This wine is marked by freshness and fruit.  The nose reveals a balanced bouquet of wild red berries and floral violet notes.  The palate is medium bodied, dry with medium to high acidity and gentle tannins. The lingering finish of berry fruit on the palate is pleasant.  Keep it classic and enjoy with a tomato based pasta, pizza or a rustic chickpea vegetable soup. 

Method

Made from 90% Sangiovese and 10% other indigenous grapes.  The winemaking techniques for this wine are meant to preserve the wine’s bright lively, fruit and freshness, so this wine is fermented and rests briefly in neutral vessels and does have any noticeable oak influence.  It is intended to be drunk young and fresh – within the first two years.
