Castello di Gabbiano Bellezza Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

A deep ruby red colour. The nose is rich and complex, intriguing notes of citrus fruits and red berry fruits very well in balance with spicy vanilla notes: it shows an evident flint aroma in the finish. In the mouth it is still very fresh with the distinctive acidulous nerve of Sangiovese. It is very elegant with silky tannins. Still evolving during bottle maturation.

Herbal, floral and nicely fruited with bright ripe cherry aromas and delicate kitchen spice. Very zesty and well spiced on the palate with a good herbal note through the mid palate and a dark smoke surprising on the finish with chocolate and coffee notes.doli 92 pts
