Gabbiano Chianti 2006

imageBy Jonathan Neitzel

Chianti is usually best served as a complement to many Italian dishes, and this bottle, Gabbiano Chianti 2006, is an excellent choice for  taste and price. At around $10 a bottle, this mildly oaked wine offers a smooth, earthy taste that hints of cherry in proper “Old World” style. A medium balance of acid and tannins coat the tongue and keep this wine soft to the palate. The wine offers a subtle but lasting finish of sour cherry that will balance out the sweetness of a homemade tomato or Bolognese sauce, can pair well with something as bold as a roasted leg of lamb seasoned with garlic and rosemary.
