More information

The Chianti Classico Riserva is the most famous wine of Castello di Gabbiano and has already received numerous awards on an international level. This red wine is vinified from Sangiovese (95%) and Merlot (5%). 

In the glass shines a bright ruby red with cherry-red highlights. The expressive bouquet reveals aromas of black cherries and strawberries - accompanied by notes of cedar wood and tobacco. The palate enjoys an elegant body with firm tannin structure. This red wine is pleasantly fresh and the acidity is perfectly balanced. The finale comes with a wonderful, pleasant length. 

Vinification of the Gabbiano Chianti Classico Riserva

The Sangiovese and Merlot grapes come from 15-year-old vines. Once the harvested material has arrived in the wine cellar, this is carefully selected by hand. After pressing the grapes, the mash is fermented in stainless steel tanks in a temperature-controlled manner. Finally, this wine rests for 12 months in small barrels (80% secondary, 20% new) as well as in large French oak wooden barrels. 

Food recommendation for the Riserva Chianti Classico Castello di Gabbiano

Serve this dry red wine from Italy with grilled meat, pasta with spicy sauce and mushroom risotto. We recommend decanting this wine beforehand.
