This wine is rewarding and satisfying to drink. The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo opens to a dark garnet color and shows a deep ruby color saturation. The bouquet offers depth and intensity with dark fruit, plum and sweet cherry. You also get exotic spice, cumin and grilled rosemary. The effect is penetrating and long-lasting. This is a richly layered Sangiovese that wraps lavishly over the palate. I'm sure the wine's evolutionary track will reward those with the patience to wait. But if you can't wait, the intensity of the primary fruit makes it a pleasure to drink in the near term as well.

With a history dating back to the 9th century AD, the Castello di Bossi estate has evolved with the times. A dynamic team leads the estate and never shies from technological innovation, while remaining true to the terroir of Chianti. It is this balance that has been a key part of Marco Bacci's vision as he has brought Castello di Bossi to the highest ranks of international wine. As the mastermind of Castello di Bossi, he oversees all operations, from beginning to end, with careful attention to detail. In the last 10 years, Marco has added two properties to his holdings: Renieri in Montalcino and Terre di Talamo in the Morellino di Scansano appellation.
