Gabbiano Chianti Classico Riserva 2016
Established in 1480 AD, Castello di Gabbiano is situated in the heart of the famed region of Chianti Classico. Federico has been chief winemaker at the Castello since February 2011, bringing great energy, focus, and a passion for innovation to his portfolio of classic Gabbiano wines. A native of Tuscany with more than a decade of experience working with prestigious neighbouring wineries, Federico has a depth of understanding about the exceptional Chianti Classico wine growing region.
93 Points - James Suckling Beautiful depth to this Chianti Classico with cherry, wet earth and mushroom aromas and flavours. Full-bodied, tight and lightly chewy with firmness and focus. Drink or hold.
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Made with 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot, this offers aromas of black-skinned berry, leather and cedar. The bright, balanced palate features black cherry, licorice and white pepper alongside silky tannins and fresh acidity.
90 Points - Vinous The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is laced with dark cherry, plum, chocolate, new leather, licorice and mint. A dollop of Merlot adds mid-palate juiciness and pliancy, along with soft contours that make the wine a real pleasure to taste and drink, even in the early going. This forward, succulent Riserva certainly has plenty to offer.
