Castello di Bossi Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This riserva has a luminous ruby red color. Appealing aromas of dark cherries, plums, sweet spice, violets, vanilla and hints of dark chocolate and menthol emerge on the nose. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied but smooth with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Tannins are well integrated with the alcohol, and lead to a subtly sweet, silky finish. Food Pairing: Pair this wine with Korean short ribs, ragù sauces, gnocchi with roasted rabbit, and beef negimaki.

Castello di Bossi s 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo explodes from the glass with dark cherries plums smoke incense and new leather. A rich exuberant wine the 2009 Berardo is loaded with personality. The new oak is barely noticeable in this broad shouldered classy utterly impeccable Riserva. Antonio Galloni.

This is an exceptional Chianti Classico that sees two years in oak to bring out those soft nuances of spice and tobacco. But that bright Sangiovese fruit is never far and it chimes in with crisp freshness on the finish as well as tangy notes of wild berry and cherry.
