Castello di Bossi Corbaia IGT 2008
The 2008 Corbaia is striking in this vintage. A delicate, graceful bouquet gives the impression of femininity, until layers of fruit hit the palate with relentless energy and focus. The 2008 impresses for its balance and overall sense of harmony. The tannins are still huge at this stage, but I sense that as they melt away the wine?s true pedigree will begin to emerge. This is a great, great showing from Castello di Bossi. Corbaia is 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in new French oak barrels.

A fruity red, with raspberry and blackberry character. Sweet tobacco too. Full and silky textured. A blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Better in 2012. James Suckling. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2008 Castello di Bossi Corbaia IGT 750ml
Corbaia is a delicious blend of Sangiovese (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon that shows compact but well-etched lines of forest fruit, bramble, cranberry and sharp, savory spice. The tannins are firm, tight and need a few more years to unwind. Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2008 Castello di Bossi Corbaia IGT 750ml
