Castello di Gabbiano Chianti Classico Riserva Black Label 2006

Member Review by EMark:

Inky dark in the glass. Nose is a tad sour, maybe alcoholic. Initial tongue sensation is fairly smooth. Cassis flavor at the very tip of the tongue. As the wine travels through the palate tartness appears. A touch of tannin around the edge of the tongue. I just opened this bottle. I wonder if anything new will emerge as it gets more air. US$15.99 at Total Wines last summer.

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
