Perhaps no region of the world personifies the warmth and graciousness of good food and great wine more completely than Tuscany. Its sunny slopes, medieval towns, and rich cultural history provide an irresistible setting for such inviting cuisine and wines. Throughout its colorful history, Tuscany has been a land of important artists and scientists, talented and forward-thinking merchants, and powerful politicians. Its castles, culture, and natural wonders make it a unique and memorable destination for millions of tourists every year. Tuscany's museums, sights, and edible delights are unsurpassed. A special mystique and light envelops this region of Italy, distinct from anywhere else in Europe. Castello di Gabbiano has been a part of the Tuscan countryside for nearly a millenium. The castle has been the home and refuge of distinguished Florentine families and its past role in Tuscan life and intrigue could easily fill many pages of a history book. Indeed, Castello di Gabbiano is a Tuscan tradition. Read less

No initial attack. The mid pallete is soft nd dry. The finish... very slight acid. The nose... simple earth/fruit. Although ok by itself... I see this wine as great with food! I will definately try it with dinner. Can't say much more until then. But something in the taste says there are hidden qulities when paired.

Smoother then most wines for it's price. Very nice red wine, with a light fruit overtone. It is a wine that will not blow you to next week, but it quite possibly one of the appeasing wines for it's price range. Highly recommendable for its price range

Quite smooth, not too bold. Great in a big bottle for large party and you won't wake up with a headache the next morning.

Ruby tending to light garnet. Lovely aromas of ripe cherry lifted by a note of iris. Focused cherry and plum flavors are brightened by persistent notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Though not a powerhouse, this well-structured wine possesses a smooth texture and considerable finesse.

Pale ruby red appearance. Moderately light-bodied. Moderately extracted. Minerals, herbs, tart cherries. Tart aromas are fully expressed on the palate with some good concentration of flavors that linger through the finish.
