Winemaker's Notes:

Made from 85% Sangiovese and 15% Merlot.

After fermentation the wine remained in barriques for 2 years. The wine exhibits a deep ruby color with spicy aromas of tamarind. It is soft and creamy on the palate with a structure that is powerful without being aggressive.

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.
