More information

The Dark Knight by Castello di Gabbiano is a modern Italian red wine cuvée made from Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot  (30%) and Sangiovese (20%) grape varieties. 

In the glass, this wine shimmers in an expressive ruby red with purple highlights. Intense aromas of red berries unfold in the nose - especially raspberry, blackberry and some strawberry - paired with sweet, spicy hints of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. On the palate, this red wine convinces with a wonderful drinking flow. The soft tannins are perfectly balanced and cling to the strong body. The finale comes with a wonderful length.

Vinification of the Gabbiano Dark Knight After harvesting

the grapes, they are immediately brought to the wine cellar of Castello di Gabbiano. Part of the harvested material is cold macerated in the stainless steel tank before the temperature-controlled mash fermentation.  The wonderful colour and soft tannins are provided by the 6-month ageing in large oak barrels. 

Food recommendation for the Dark Knight by Gabbiano

Enjoy this dry red wine from Italy best with game dishes in dark sauce with swirled potatoes, or with ripe cheeses.
