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.
External Reviews for Castello di Gabbiano Chianti
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.
