About Our Ratings

Chianti Classico Riserva 2010 Bellezza, Castello Di Gabbiano
In the 12th century Castello di Gabbiano was constructed in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, just south of Florence. Today, this 252-acre estate of vineyards and olive groves is equipped with a modern fermentation cellar and all of the wines are crafted the rich Tuscan winemaking traditions but using the most up-to-date techniques. This Reserva is produced from fruit sourced from the finest Sangiovese vines on the estate. The vines are stretched out on south and southeastern facing slopes 800+ feet above sea level, planted in rocky, marl-rich limestone and clay soils. The handpicked fruit was crushed and fermented in small temperature controlled stainless steel tanks over 28 days. Then the wine was transferred to new French oak barrels and left on the lees, with battonage (stirring) occurring once a week for one month. The wine was aged for 17 months in new French oak barrels and an additional 6 months in bottle before release. James Suckling scored it 90 points and said "Black cherry and blackberry flavors are framed by vanilla and toast in this polished red, whose finish is fresh and long, though the tannins still need time to integrate. Best from 2015 through 2024."
