2006 Gabbiano Chianti

I was perusing our archives and was shocked to see we've never reviewed the regular ol' Gabbiano Chianti. You know the drill with this one, six bucks or so, available everywhere wine is sold.

Strawberry and earth on the nose.

Interesting – this is one of most Pinot Noir like Chianti's I've had. In fact, screw cheap Pinot Noir, grab this. Chocolate, earth, even a bit of cola, and cherry.

Earth, anise, and chocolate on the finish.

I've been a believer in Gabbiano for a while – in fact, it holds a special place in my heart as Gabbiano Chianti is the first bottle of wine I ever bought (my thoughts at the time “that label is bad ass!”). A decent bottle of wine that's a steal and a half at the price.
