Gabbiano Chianti 2006

Gabbiano Chianti 750ml 2006   
Sku: 11006

Gabbiano Chianti DOCG is a traditional blend of primarily Sangiovese grapes, but also includes small amounts of Canaiolo, Trebbiano, and Colorino grapes. The DOCG designation means this Chianti meets the rigorous winemaking standards set by Italian law and guarantees that the wine is produced using the highest quality of traditional winemaking methods. Only 21 zones in Italy have the prestigious honor of being recognized as meeting the DOCG requirements. After aging for six months in large stainless-steel tanks, the Gabbiano DOCG wine rests for another six months in the bottle before being released.

Wine maker notes
This wine is clear, bright and ruby-red in color. The bouquet is reminiscent of ripe plums spiced with pepper and wood nuances. The first sip reveals invigorating flavors of sour cherry, blackberry, and spice followed by a dry vivid finish. This Chianti is bold enough to complement rich and spicy pasta dishes, and is also perfect with tangy chicken or gourmet pizza.
