A new entry by Le Selezioni di Castello di Gabbiano: Mŏvĕo

The new year brings a new label by Le Selezioni di Castello di Gabbiano: Mŏvĕo  (it was announced!) A rosé wine, which contains all the meanings of its name. Mŏvĕo [Latin] = move, set in motion - shake - change, transform - undertake, begin - move, soften - impress - distract, change one's opinion - provoke, produce, arouse - dance. A new way of understanding Sangiovese - produced according to the ancestral method -  sparkling! To toast the goals that we will reach in

Christmas however

The strength of Christmas : with or without family lunches, parties, hugs, toasts and gifts, Christmas always comes anyway. For everyone. Silence perhaps will make it easier to feel its greatness. La forza del Natale: con o senza i pranzi in famiglia, le feste, gli abbracci, i brindisi e i regali, Natale comunque arriva sempre. Per tutti. Nel silenzio forse sarà più facile sentirne la grandezza.

UVA PRETIOSA

Some key words always guided our work, we had never realized that they can all be summed up in two words: UVA PRETIOSA(Precious Grape).  Today Castello di Gabbiano is the leader of the UVA PRETIOSA Project. The industrial wine sector is exploring solutions to develop marketable products resulting from the exploitation of the industry’s wastes. UVA PRETIOSA project aims to find new reuses technics of by-products of grape-wine production chain. Winemaking is well-known for its generation of large amounts of organic

First tastings new Oil

From Castello di Gabbiano oil mill, the first considerations on the 2020 olives pressing: a very satisfactory year from the quantity side, many olives, unfortunately the yield is low (under 11%), but the quality of the oil is very good! At the first tastings the 2020 oil, from an organoleptic point of view, is very characteristic, rich in aromas and flavor, with the typical bitter note of our oil. It will be bottled very soon.  

At the oil mill

The pressing of the olives takes place immediately after harvesting at the  oil mill of Castello di Gabbiano. The whole process, which provides for cleaning and subsequent washing of the olives, crushing hammer and for the centrifugal extraction, cold occurs(not over 27°C)… what results, however, offers us very warm sensations on the palate, heart, mind. The new oil is coming!

We started the olives harvest: waiting to hear the agronomist's words on the state of the olives and the first tastings of the new oil, we share some suggestive images

2020 Harvest: the winemaker’s words

(…read here previous episodes)  It is always the very last weeks of the grapes ripening season to determine the final quality of the vintage. The 2020 vintage was not easy from a qualitative point of view although the conditions were excellent up to 3 weeks before harvest.  With the late September and early October rains, everything got complicated. Having a large extension of vineyards, every year we find different expressions in our SANGIOVESE vineyards: this year more than ever the location

2020 Harvest: the End!

(…read here previous episodes)  Our harvest is ended, all grapes are in the cellar.  This year the harvest was a little earlier in the younger vineyards that had suffered a little from the high temperatures and water stress during the month of August. But in the end we accelerated it a bit, due to the heavy rains from the end of September.  Even last year the harvest was not long, let's compare our harvest dates between 2019 and 2020: 2019

2020 Harvest: updating from the cellar

(…read here previous episodes)  The harvest keeps, the Sangiovese grapes that have already reached their full ripeness arrive in the cellar and undertake their transformation process. Most of these sangiovese grapes will perform the alcoholic fermentation in small stainless steel - only for some of these grapes our choice falls on the wooden fermentation. In this case we use so-called "exhausted" barriques, of third or fourth passage.

2020 Harvest: updating from the vineyards

(…read here previous episodes)  Harvest is still on: we harvested about 5,000 quintals of grapes over 100 hectares - low yields (less than 45 quintals/hectare) our FORECAST is confirmed. There are approximately 50 hectares of Sangiovese, Cabernet and Petit Verdot still to pick. We started to harvest the best Sangiovese grapes for our  Riserva Chianti Classico:  great SATISFACTION, the Sangiovese grapes are still healthy and beautiful, despite the repeated rains. The CONCERN is fairly represented by the water-soaked soil, in some vineyards we

2020 Harvest: intense time

(see previous news: here)  In the vineyards harvest is on work in fits and starts because of the frequent sudden rains -  we are comfortable as the most delicate grapes have already been picked and those still on the plants are healthy. In the cellar the fermentations have started - proceeding under the watchful eye of the oenologists. Meanwhile, in the aging cellar our cellar-men are working with the receipt of the new woods for the new vintage. The new French

Approching 2020 harvest

Approching harvest is a highlight of the year in a winery. A path that comes to an end. The climate, the choices that were made and the work of the whole season will be summed up in each bunch of grapes that we will pick. The grapes that we will bring to the cellar will be this year’s first report card. It was a favorable season by a climatic point of view - both in terms of rainfall, abundant in autumn and early spring,

An unusual harvest!

Nature never stops, the cycle of life continues, always, at all times, whatever condition humanity is experiencing. This is the positive message that nature gives us. We take it. And though there are times when it does not need our hand to continue its cycle, we are committed to the hand anyway. In this period, on days when not everyone's work is allowed in its custom, we strive to clean up the plastic of the ligatures of the vines accumulated

La fortuna di vivere in uno dei paesi più belli del nostro pianeta: l’Italia

La Terra, un pianeta meraviglioso. Oggi questa pandemia, che ha viaggiato in tutto il mondo,  costringe tutti a fermarci, sospendere ogni attività, chiuderci nelle nostre case, limitarci nei nostri spostamenti. Ma sappiamo che, con l’impegno di tutti, la fermeremo e con il grande impegno della scienza la vinceremo. Il futuro più prossimo ci vedrà godere un po’ più libertà, potremo iniziare a uscire con le dovute precauzioni, muoverci un po’, programmare qualche breve spostamento, qualche gita. E allora ci renderemo

COVID19: our reflection

A completely unexpected situation and bordering on the surreal. But it's real. And it affects the whole world at the same time. Those who do not live it up close find it difficult to understand its seriousness and urgency. Italians, who do not live in the northern regions most affected, but look at them closely, feel discomfort and solidarity for the pain and fatigue that people are suffering there, we are afraid that the same nightmare may come to us, we

vendemmia sangiovese

C’è fermento nell’aria!

Una annata decisamente asciutta, ma grazie alle riserva d’acqua accumulate durante l’inverno e la primavera assai piovosi ( a fine giugno avevamo già avuto 600mm di pioggia – la media annuale è di 800mm), e grazie a temperature mai eccessivamente elevate, nonché le buone escursioni termiche durante la notte, l’uva è in ottime condizioni, sana e bella. Sebbene un po’ scarsa. Settembre, inoltre, ha portato qualche pioggia, mai violenta, seguita da bellissime giornate di sole, calde e ventilate. Ottimo per

Die Traubenlese 2016: ein Gespräch mit dem Agronom

Die Traubenlese 2016: ein Gespräch mit dem Agronom Prolog: Unsere Fragen an den Agronom Francesco Caselli, verantwortlich für die fast 150 ha Rebberge des Gutes Hinweis: NIE, vor allem in einem viel versprechenden Jahr, sollte man von einem Winzer Prognosen über die Traubenernte erwarten. Schon gar nicht in der Toskana, wo die Ernte des Sangiovese erst Ende September beginnt, wenn das Wetter oft unberechenbar ist und jederzeit Regen droht. Dazu ist die Sangiovese -Traube empfindlich wie eine Frau am Rande eines Nervenzusammenbruchs.

TAPPO A VITE!

Tappo sughero o tappo a vite?  Non c’è discussione, per i più tradizionalisti il tappo a vite è difficile da accettare, soprattutto su un vino rosso.  Una lezione di apertura ci arriva dal Consorzio del Vino Chianti, che ammette, già dalla vendemmia 2014,  il tappo a vite. Il tappo a vite di  nuova generazione è, a tutti gli effetti,  una garanzia di protezione e perfetta conservazione per un vino giovane e fresco come il Chianti !   Ma non tutti i
