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.
