The Alleanza is pure seduction. Outstanding quality for the price, it shows all the hallmarks of a classic Super Tuscan without the usual Super Tuscan price point.
The influential Wine Enthusiast Magazine notes: “This delicious Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend offers an alluring fragrance of blackberry, red currant and thyme punctuated by tarry, leather aromas. The palate shows ample plum flavor layered with chocolate and cinnamon accents, as well as round, polished tannins.” Created from the best cabernet and merlot parcels across the entire Gabbiano estate, the Alleanza is made to be a true super-tuscan style wine - rich and plush, with layers of ripe, pristine fruit, wrapped in the cedary structure of top quality French oak. The wine is aged in the castello's ancient cellars and released when it can be enjoyed immediately, however, the quality of the fruit means this wine will age gracefully over 10+ years so hiding a few bottles away is also a great idea.
