    Winemaker Notes

    Predominently Sangiovese the wine has notes of plums and blackberries on the nose and palate. A wine that craves rich, meaty foods: pasta Bolognese or New York Strip steak.

    Castello di Gabbiano

    Castello di Gabbiano, , Italy
    Gabbiano
    The Castello di Gabbiano predates the Tower of Pisa. Construction began atop a hill in Northern Tuscany in 1124. The original 12th century tower of the Castello was intended to overlook and protect the road, which came from Siena and continued on to Florence. It has been the home and refuge of distinguished Florentine families and continues to be a popular Tuscan destination. Throughout the centuries, the Castello underwent several structural renovations, the most recent being in 1999, starting a new era for the Castello di Gabbiano.

    The original Castello shows evidence of a wine cellar, proving wine had been made there since its creation.

    Our winemaker, Giancarlo Roman, creates wines that reflect the uniqueness of the Tuscan region. He has worked in Tuscany for nearly 30 years and has been associated with Castello di Gabbiano since 1990. Giancarlo's winemaking philosophy and goal at Castello di Gabbiano is to maximize the quality in the vineyards and produce wines that are true to their origins. Our 250 acre home vineyard is the key source of our Riserva wine portfolio.

    Taste the true spirit and flavors of Tuscany in every glass of Castello di Gabbiano wines.

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    View all wine

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

    In the Glass

    High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

    Perfect Pairings

    Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

    Sommelier Secrets

    Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
