Winemaker's Notes:

This riserva has a luminous ruby red color. Appealing aromas of dark cherries, plums, sweet spice, violets, vanilla and hints of dark chocolate and menthol emerge on the nose. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied but smooth with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Tannins are well integrated with the alcohol, and lead to a subtly sweet, silky finish.

Pair this wine with Korean short ribs, rag├╣ sauces, gnocchi with roasted rabbit, and beef negimaki.

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.
