Gardini Chianti Classico


The Chianti Classico Tasting notes by Luca Gardini are online!
Reading his article is highlyrecommended: it is a short and clear profile of the appellation history, production area, and essential points of the regulation.
Luca Gardini also published his selection of Chianti Classico wines:
2013 Castello di Gabbiano Chianti Classico DOCG is there. It is scored 92“This Sangiovese is not quite a solo performance, but almost. One year of aging in wood of different capacities and stainless steel. Complex aromas of red fruits, a lot of strawberry, sweet spices, and graphite. Sleek, quick mouth, especially in terms of swiftness of the drink. Smooth finish, at the same time, sharp with red peppercorns. Acidic tannins.”
