TASTING NOTE: Legend has it that during the Middle Ages, the vineyards of Castello di Gabbiano were guarded by a golden knight. The Cavaliere d'Oro line of wines honours this figure and the long heritage of winemaking he represents. This solid value is approachable, soft and ripe, with blackberry, cassis, fig, mocha, spice, mint and oak tones. A legendary match for grilled meats and grilled veggies.
