Overview After an unfortunate period in the ‘70s, when the wicker baskets that held the wine were given more attention than the liquid itself and Chianti became known as Italian for “undrinkable,” this delicious red’s reputation has fully recovered—or deserves to, anyway. This quintessential food wine is one of our go-to choices for tomato sauces, game meats, and a host of other Italian dishes. Gabbiano, with its sourness and acidity is a particularly great match for many foods.

Nose Dried cherries and an enticing earthiness dominate this classic Chianti nose.

Mouth Though its acidity might be a bit off-putting solo, the slight tanginess is nice.
