classic chianti for sure, quite tannic and puckering, could use a year in the cellar but good length and good depth

Gabbiano...say it with me"Gabbiano" if only my name sounded that suave. Anyway, i love the bouquet on this classic rustic Tuscan Chianti. I love the pipe tobacco, tar dripping resin, smokey cherries, vanilla oak, herbs and sweet spices. Fans of Rioja will rejoice. The palate is gritty and dry. Use a sifter to avoid the chunky tannins from ending up in your glass. Medium bodied, balanced and manly. Good stuff!
