For example, here we daily mention ISO, SGA, VIVA, and not referring to any ‘futuristic’ project.  ...

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.

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...

SCREW CAP !

  Cork or screw cap? There is no question, the screw cap is hard to accept by conservatives, especially on a red wine. A lesson in open-mindedness is given by  Chianti Consortium, who admits the screw cap, already the harvest 2014. 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...
