Gabbiano Cavaliere d'Oro Riserva Chianti Classico 2018

Tuscany, ItalyThis opens with a 2018 hit of warmth and ripeness, including a touch of maroon at the rim. The palate is full-flavoured with dark plums, mushrooms, baked cherries, and balsamico. A surprising amount of tannins suggests this wine could be cellared for three to five years. You can drink it now with a sugo or roasted vegetables. The mix is 95/5 sangiovese/merlot from various Tuscan estates. It spent ten months in oak casks and 225L barrels (10% new) and was given another year in bottle before release.Tasted: 30 June 2023Tasted by: Prices:
