Winemaker's Notes:

The vinification of grapes occurs in steel vats. The vines used are Sangiovese 90%, Canaiolo 3% and Merlot 7%. The composition can change a little every single grape harvest. The wine matures in French wood barrels for about 6/8 months. Intense ruby colour, of great luminosity. Sweet sensations of toasted oak exalt the fruity component, where one can smell clear scents of mature cherry, refined by very elegant floral notes of violet. Just at a first tasting one can note the solidity of the product, witnessed by a good structure, where the tannis achieve the right balance with the alcoholic component. Long lasting taste, extremely enjoyable.

About Castello di Bossi:

The Bossi Castle is located in the town of Castelnuovo Berardenga, the southernmost appellation of Chianti Classico, amidst evergreen woods and long rows of vines. With a history dating back to the 9th century A.D., the estate embraces modern technology, while at the same time respecting the traditional character of the lands of Chianti. This balance has been a key part of Marco Bacci's vision as he has brought Castello di Bossi to the highest ranks in the realm of international wine.

The estate is led by a dynamic team that never shies from technological innovation, while also remaining true to the terroir of Chianti. Marco Bacci is the mastermind of Castello di Bossi, following with careful attention to detail all the operations from beginning to end.
