Top Five Italian Sangiovese

5. Castello di Bossi Chianti Classico (2007)

« Prev 5 of 5
Previously available for $18.36
This offers up rather intense notes of wild cherry, iris, iron, mint, sweet bay leaf, tobacco and gum all over subtle savory wood tones. This shows a rather developed edge on entry with some nice leafy elements and a softness to the tannins. There are plenty of unresolved tannins here and nice spiky acids, making this tense and bright on a palate. Delivers fine strawberry, wild cherry, leather and soft dried herb flavors over a subtle layer of creamy wood. The finish is firmer and darker with ashy notes and a lovely edge of nuttiness. Good length and dark fruit mark the finish as does a tiny bit of heat. 90pts
