Castello di Gabbiano Chianti Classico Riserva 2016

Tuscany, ItalyA fantastic year to be drinking sangiovese from Tuscany, or in this case, mostly sangiovese with a splash of merlot and traditional grapes. The colour is impressively dark, the nose savoury with black cherries and black plums that work its way onto the palate. The ripeness and texture of a perfect vintage make this very attractive, especially for the price. Pass the bolognese, please.Tasted: 11 December 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 private wine shops AB 18.25 private wine shops SK 22.98 SaskLiquor MB 22.99 Manitoba Liquor Marts ON 22.95 The Beer Guy QC 23.95 SAQ NB 27.95 NBLiquor Producer: Castello di GabbianoDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
