Chianti Classico DOCG 2015

For owner Marco Bacci, success is in the details, from vineyard to bottle. The entire Castello di Bossi portfolio of wines carefully balances the tradition and rich history of the region with innovative winemaking techniqes; this Chianti Classico is no exception. Made from 100% Sangiovese, grown in soils with high chalk content, this wine shows just how good this varietal can taste.

Tasting Notes

Deep, ruby-red in color, this Chianti Classico offers aromas of ripe cherries and red plums, with subtle notes of toasted vanilla beans and purple flowers. On the palate, the wine displays a superbly structured character with bright acidity and a pleasantly savory finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with grilled steak tips and ratatouille.
