Castello di Gabbiano

Bellezza Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2013

Needs more time. Still very primary and more fruit forward than a gran selezione should be.
Still enjoyable with some air. I grabbed this at $19. It's a 90 now with room to improve 1 to 3 pts with aging.

Castello di Albola

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

Color of clear saturated ruby. Nose of strawberry, ripe grapes, spice, cherry jam, a bit vanilla, powerful alcohol, and a bit black tea. Taste of spicy tea, sweet note from ripe grapes, bittersweet zest, a bit peppery, quite light, some orange, and low tannins. Aftertaste of some more grapefruit note. Clean refined flavors yet a bit too light for me. β€” 5 days ago

Castello di Neive

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Friday night and tonight's wine is the 2016 Castello di Neive Barbaresco. This wine is 100% Nebbiolo from Neive, Italy.

On the nose there is cherry, raspberry, strawberry, anise, rose and dry soil.

On the palate is cherry, raspberry, rose, spice, licorice, soft oak, clay pot and earth.

This wine is medium body with medium+ acidity and medium + to high mouth coating fine sandpaper tannins that leads into a long drying red fruit finish.

Let's all have a wonderful weekend, enjoy time with family and friends and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Castello Vicchiomaggio

San Jacopo Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2009

Rose petal, tart cherry smooth tannin. Absolutely delicious & well-integrated - on day 2. Needed time to open up, but it's a wonderful balance of rustic & elegant, with lots of what was once red fruit. The acid is still haunting. I adore this wine. It may not be top of its class, but it excels at being what it is. β€” 12 days ago

Castello di Volpaia

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

No where near the 97 points given by WS. Still a very nice chianti but i preferred the 2015. This one had a bit too much tartaric acid to my liking. β€” 14 days ago
