The year was warm and rainfall was good until May, resulting in healthy and regular flowering. A dry summer concluded with harvest in September under excellent conditions allowing each vineyard to be harvested at the optimum phenolic ripeness. Healthy, low-yielding crops with great aromatic and colour intensity were delivered to the winery. The resulting wines affirm 2015 as one of the best recent vintages, alongside 2005 and 2010, marked by complex wines of dense, layered fruit and ripe, fleshy tannins.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour: Bright and intense ruby.

Bouquet: The bouquet shows good aromatic intensity with blueberry fruit and a touch of grassy herbaciousness.

Palate: Flavours of red fruits, liquorice and a touch of fresh herbs follow through on a rounded and fleshy palate, to a persistent finish.

Service: Serve at around 14-15 degrees Celsius. A classic light, young drinking Rioja to accompany a wide range of Spanish tapas including semi-mature sheep’s mild cheese (manchego), Spanish cured ham (jamon); piquillo peppers stuffed with salt-cod; or stuffed peppers Rioja style. Enjoy this Rioja whilst it is fresh and vibrant – over the coming 2 years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Castello di Gabbiano, built in 1124, has been the home and refuge of distinguished Florentine families during some of the most famous intrigues and events in Tuscan history.

The estate is situated in the prestigious commune of San Casciano, Val di Pesa in the Chianti Classico area. This 173-acre estate is planted with vineyards and olive groves that blend harmoniously into the classic Tuscan landscape.

Just over 65 acres of property are dedicated to growing Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes used for producing the estate's exceptional quality Chianti Classico Riserva and Super Tuscan Bellezza. The remaining vineyard acreage is planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that is used with the native Sangiovese to create the superb Super Tuscan - Alleanza.

Today the estate has continued replanting of the older vineyard blocks while expanding its 12th century cellars. These modifications have allowed winemaker, Giancarlo Roman, to continue to raise the quality of Castello di Gabbiano wines to the world-class level. Based in the Chianti Classico region of Italy, Gabbiano Chiantis have DOCG classification.

The full Castello di Gabbiano portfolio comprises a core range of still Italian wines including a Rosé, Pinot Grigio, Chianti, Chianti Classico, Classico Riserva, two Super Tuscan wines (Alleanza and Bellezza), plus the latest release Gabbiano Asti.
