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! ...

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: 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.[video width="848" height="480" mp4="https://www.castellogabbiano.it/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/fermentazioni-sangiovese-1.mp4"][/video] ...

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...

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...

Long life to the barrel: a life as a supporting actor

Each barrel is unique, the winemaker's ability lies in identifying the best wine-barrel combination and understanding the right aging time, which will give the wine further aromas and enhance its organoleptic qualities. By aging a wine its role is very important, but it is successful when it is not dominant, the first actor is always the wine. Exhausted after hosting two, three vintages of wines, the barrels still find their role,  still supportive, never as the first actor, but always...

The confirmation of an old vintage gives comfort

The castle stands over its vineyards for centuries.  The centenary wisteria climbing the castle tower, has announced with its blooms dozens of springs. This year there it is to remind us that it is a difficult, but always beautiful spring.

With the comfort of this message, we uncork a...

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...

2015 Bellezza Chianti Classico Gran Selezione @Wine-Searcher

Wine-Searcher.com:   in the article ‘Chianti's Top Tier Grows Up’  wine writer W. Blake Gray says of the 2015 Castello di Gabbiano Cavaliere d'Oro Bellezza Chianti Classico Gran Selezione: “Nice characteristic Chianti Classico, with notes of dried cherries, a bit of tobacco and leather. This reminds me of a Riserva in that its tannins are more noticeable than many Gran Seleziones. The Gran Selezione category might be most useful for these large-company wines; this is a very characteristic Chianti Classico that...
