Gabbiano 2010 Chianti Classico, $5.94-$12.99, 88 points, was a bright cranberry red trending ruby at the core, and having a broad clear rim.
Aromatic toasty strawberry with just a hint of vanilla and earth were pleasant.
Barely medium bodied (almost a rich Rosé ), and having bright acidity with moderate and persistent tannin.
This rather one-dimensional red wine is blessed with a lovely flavor of strawberries, watermelon, and just a hint of hibiscus.
Finished fair with a trailing palate with a well blended 13.5% alcohol.
January's sale is over, but still a great value as a general table wine; might not wow, but certainly will please.
