2016 grape harvest at Castello di Gabbiano

We started our harvest second week of September, in our youngest vineyards ,  picking the grapes destinated to our rosé wine. Now we are working on the real harvest. This year we had a fabulous summer, very dry, sunny and warm but not extreme high temperatures.  Except for 2 weeks in July we never exceeded the 35° Celsius even during midday. During the nights the temperatures diminished considerably. Almost no rain at all since June 20.  However, fortunately we had...

2016 Vintage: chatting with the agronomist

Prologue: interview Francesco Caselli, the agronomist in charge of the almost 150ha estate vineyards. Note: NEVER, but especially in a promising vintage, ask for vintage quality forecasting a grower of Sangiovese in Tuscany - where harvest starts late September, when weather is unpredictable and rain is never a remote risk, and Sangiovese is delicate as a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown! The agronomist words: "After a favourable early start, spring came late and was marked by heavy rains and temperature decreases. The season...

The new generation screw caps are, in every respect, a guarantee of protection and perfect preservation for a young and fresh wine like Chianti DOCG! But not all markets are ready to accept this evolution, the Gabbiano Chianti wine, also proposed...
