Castello di Bossi Chianti Classico 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine shows a deep, luminous ruby. On the nose, sweet, toasty notes of oak enhance the fruit, with marked nuances of ripe cherry refined by elegant scents of violets. On entry, the wine immediately demonstrates its superb, full-structured character, with a harmonious, judicious balance between tannins and alcohol. An intensely savoury finish.

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

Very fruity. Smooth, light tannins, and a little chalky texture

A bit too concentrated for my liking. A bit too fruit-bomby, some would say "modern." Would have liked more structure of earth and acidity.

Sweeter than some other Chiantis, this very juicy and a bit soft.

Oak, cherry and vanilla. Soft but acidity makes it not smooth. Reminds me of curing herbs or even (and kind of gross) the silage shed of my uncle's dairy farm. Very nice complex aroma and taste.

The 2007 Chianti Classico is a gorgeous wine graced with silky tannins, intensely perfumed fruit and an understated, elegant finish. Leather, spices, dried herbs and tobacco add complexity to the fruit, but it is the wine s impeccable sense of harmony that is most impressive. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015.
