"Here is an easy-drinking wine from Castello di Bossi. The 2012 Chianti Classico exhibits a thin style with a few points of sharpness and thorniness. The bouquet offers moderate intensity with wild berry, forest bramble, cranberry and white cherry. This wine does not deliver the roundness nor the intensity of past vintages. Castello di Bossi is a flagship producer from the Castelnuovo Berardenga sub zone in the southern part of the appellation. To my mind, Marco Bacci's wines offer one of the most authentic representations of this special growing area. The climate is a bit warmer here and the soils a bit thicker. Consequently, Castello di Bossi makes wines that are on the far side of the Chianti Classico spectrum in terms of power, intensity and concentration."

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.
