This bottle simply requires patience. Upon opening, I could understand some of the tasting notes written before mine. The nose was a frontal assault of fruit and the palate followed with an odd citrus note that threw off my red wine sensors.. but with an hour of air in bottle, this really started to show some classic chianti classico features. The color of this wine was a deep ruby red that turned a burnt orange at the rim. The nose is very traditional as you are hit with sour cherry, barnyard, saddle leather and black pepper. On the palate I found an initial burst of red fruit with a hint of orange peel, which turned sweet and full on the mid palate. The finish showed roasted chestnut and cigar box. I can't help but call this wine classic, traditional... Italian. This IS Chianti Classico.
External Reviews for Chianti Classico Bacci Castello di Bossi
The 2006 Chianti Classico (100% Sangiovese) is truly beautiful as it opens up in the glass, revealing tons of fruit in the powerful, ripe style that is typical of Castelnuovo. The wine possesses tons of stuffing and richness yet maintains notable clarity. Not only is this Chianti Classico a superb value, it can also challenge wines costing twice as much. Needless to say, it is highly recommended. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016. This is a superb set of wines from Castello di Bossi and proprietor Marco Bacci. The estate is located in Castelnuovo Berardenga, the warmest and most southerly of the Chianti Classico villages, and the wines are loaded with Castelnuovo character.
