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

Tasting Notes:

A golden hue with straw gold coloration. The palate features stone fruits, pears, bright lemon, with a bit of grassiness and peaches. A complex nose and mouth-feel add a touch of talc/chalk, and some floral lilac notes. A wine built with med/high acidity, it offers a round & soft body, with a medium to rich mineral finish. The slight shale or slate complexities combine with goose berries and a few green plums. Over time a slight honeyed, green tea character develops.
