 90 Points Vinous Media “The Chianti Classico is a terrific choice for readers looking for a wine to drink now. Sweet dried cherry, crushed flowers, cinnamon and a hint of orange peel are the signatures of a wine that is already starting to show a good deal of aromatic complexity. Even so, there is still a good bit of acidity keeping the flavors vibrant. Soft contours add to the wine’s considerable appeal. It is not the last word in complexity, but it is fruity, supple and very delicious. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later.”

Description

The winemaking revolution which in the last few years has taken place in Chianti Classico and in Tuscan winemaking in general could hardly have left untouched as well a historic winery estate such as Castello di Bossi. Today the Castello di Bossi covers 650 hectares , on which 124 are under vine. Those 124 hectares planted to Sangiovese, the main variety of Chianti Classico and of Tuscany in general; and to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which were planted at Bossi some forty years ago, probably among the first in Chianti Classico. . This unique microclimate and optimal exposition to the sun, yield grapes that are perfectly ripe, healthy, and of great character. The grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine then matures and rests in light-toast French oak barrels.  Fundamental for keeping our standards of quality high is our ambitious programme of replanting, carried out on a cyclic basis and due for completion in 3-4 years.
