Tasting Note: intense ruby red; floral sensations of fresh sweet violets, maraschino cherry jam and a hint of vanilla; Dry to the taste, smooth and full, with marked tannin, well-rounded; the freshness is measured but firm, excellence persistence on the nose.

The 2009 Gabbiano Chianti Classico is a light bodied, fruity to integrated wine, with appealing aromas of red currant, cherry, dark chocolate and oak. It has a nice acidity, refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a smooth, medium to long finish. It is food friendly; drink now and for the next few years. My impression: NICE, 88-89 pts. Tasted Nov/12.

Light garnet. Tart cherry, fine tannins and nice finish. This saw a bit of time in large capacity French oak casks.

This is supposed to be paired ONLY with Tuscan Arista of pig and wild mushroom fricassee, and truffled cheese.
