Castello di Bossi Chianti Classico Riserva "Berardo" 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo is a beautiful and complete expression of 100% Sangiovese with great textural richness and a big sense of power at the back. The wine starts off in a slow and rather understated manner, but it finds its momentum quickly and becomes very generous along the way. This Riserva needs to flesh out further. Give it a few more years of bottle aging." - Wine Advocate

This is a big and complex chianti, not at all like the simpler chianti and sangiovese that I'm more accustomed to. First whiff announces this wine is definitely old world and surprisingly complex. Blackberry and stewed fruit notes are almost secondary to notes of leather, cedar, and vanilla. On the palate this wine is, once again, a surprise: it's bright and acidic with lots of ripe fruit. It starts out really with a really smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. Lots of well integrated tannin tempers the acidity and doesn't come across as whatsoever aggressive. Good length too. At $63 CDN, I didn't think this wine represents killer value - but it does deliver for the price.

Plum and tobacco, with more interesting attack and finish than midpalate. Missing something.

Green olive and dark plum aromas and flavors, with slightly gritted tannins and a finish dominated by plums and eucalyptus.

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.

Sophisticated and intense, this is an extraordinary wine that performs beautifully both in terms of nose and mouth. The aromas are broad and all-encompassing, including blackberry, red currant, vanilla and pretty shadings of exotic spice. The mouthfe... Wine Enthusiast.
