Castello di Bossi Chianti Classico 2011
|Brand||Castello di Bossi|
Wine AdvocateWith simple and clean lines, the 2011 Chianti Classico is redolent of bright cherry, blackberry and dried cassis. There's a ripe element to the bouquet that comes thanks to the vintage heat and the thicker soils of the Castelnuovo Berardenga growing area in the southern part of the Chianti Classico appellation. The finish is soft and luscious with a slightly chewy quality to the tannins.
Wine EnthusiastThis reflects the intense heat of the vintage, showing mature berry and plum aromas with toasted notes. The palate is warm and shows ripe-nearly over-ripe-black-cherry, chocolate, espresso and spice flavors. It closes with astringent tannins.
