Needs to decanter for at least 10 min. However, you get what you pay for. Passable but lackluster as it's body is mild and finish unremarkable. The taste is distinctly old world but don't expect much more. Perfect compliment to your local pizzeria Saturday night special.

Winemaker's Notes:

The vineyards providing fruit for the 2004 Chianti DOCG are located on the hillsides of the Chianti region of Tuscany at average altitudes of 325 - 650 feet. The soil consists primarily of sandstone, shale and sand, with lower layers of calcite and marl. The Catello di Gabbiano Chianti DOCG is a traditional blend of primarily Sangiovese, with small amounts of Canaiolo and Colorino grapes added for color and fruit flavors. The juice was vinified on the skins, in stainless-steel tanks for 15 days at controlled temperatures of 28-30°C (about 82-86°F). To extract color and flavor as well as enhance texture, pump-overs were performed four times daily. One hundred percent malolactic fermentation ended after 25-30 days. Before bottling, the wine was aged for 3-4 months in stainless steel tanks. The Chianti DOCG is a deep, ruby red color. The nose exhibits aromas of violets and ripe red fruits, while the palate shows rich flavors of brown spice and berries. This full-bodied wine is balanced with a clean acidity, smooth tannins, and a dry, lingering finish.
