2016 Castello di Bossi Classico Berardo Riserva


Regular price $29.99

2016 Chianti Classico Berardo Riserva 92pts
Castello di Bossi


The Castello di Bossi estate is located in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga in the southernmost tip of the Chianti Classico zone. Berardo is a shortened way of saying, "it comes from Berardenga."  Areas further south in Chianti Classico tend to produce rounder, fuller versions of Chianti and this wine is a perfect example of this rich elegance.

This is a full and generous expression with dark fruit, dried blackberry, spice and lightly toasted nut. The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo is a classic mid-weight Tuscan red with lots of pretty freshness and firm tannins that are not at all astringent or bitter. I'm finding that some of these wines from Castello di Bossi are a bit clipped, hallow or short on the finish. That is the case here. Open it alongside an amatriciana with plenty of shaved pecorino.

17.5/20 Jancis Robinson
Just mid ruby. Pretty, lively cherry and raspberry nose with just a hint of cardamom pod. A sour-cherry palate stitched together by ripe, grainy tannins. Very long, youthful and juicy.
