Castello di Gabbiano

Bellezza Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2012

Much improved from 8 months ago but ideally needs more time to integrate further.
Traditional style. Cherry, leather, a bit of earth, and subtle floral flavors.
Drank with pork milanese and risotto. Very good!

My final wine of the trio I bought from Sesti via Elie wine company. Went very well with stuffed peppers. Has a bit more earthiness to it with some gorgeous cherry fruit. — 25 days ago

Banfi

Castello Banfi Col de Sasso 2016

Pleasant wine to enjoy with our lamb and pork dishes. The English translations didn’t describe the dishes very good as they were delicious. Restaurant wine price was €16. We tasted the high end Banfi wines at their tasting room a few days ago but didn’t get to the everyday wines. — 16 days ago

Castello di Ama

San Lorenzo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Sangiovese Blend 2010

R Bl
9.1

Tasted 4 years ago and was impressed by taste profile pairing 80% Sangiovese tang with mellower elements of Malvasia Mera, Merlot and Cab Franc. Bought a few bottles... excellent again a couple months later, first tried again now. Deep rich mouth with only minor Sangiovese character; the blend speaks as one and is very good. But it would have been better to my palate a few years ago - this is a bit too soft, as I like the varietal notes. I’ll wait another few years for the last bottle - might it evolve more fragrance and enjoyment? I doubt it but we’ll see. — 17 days ago

Distilleria Del Barbaresco (Gaja)

Castello di Barbaresco Sperss Grappa di Barolo Nebbiolo

Special grappa from the 1980s. The first grappa from Castello di Barbaresco produced by Gaia and Rey, the last year using the OLD distillery of the castle, before it got destroyed. Very fine - memorable night. — 19 days ago
