Castello di Bossi Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo 2011

SKU 32316


This riserva has a luminous ruby red color. Appealing aromas of dark cherries, plums, sweet spice, violets, vanilla and hints of dark chocolate and menthol emerge on the nose. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied but smooth with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Tannins are well integrated with the alcohol, and lead to a subtly sweet, silky finish. Food Pairing: Pair this wine with Korean short ribs, ragù sauces, gnocchi with roasted rabbit, and beef negimaki.

VinousThe 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo offers lovely depth and persistence in a round, succulent style that gives the wine considerable near and medium-term appeal. Cedar, smoke, tobacco, licorice and black cherries form an attractive fabric. Although quite expressive today, the 2011 has more than enough depth and pedigree to drink well for at least another decade and perhaps longer.

Wine SpectatorRich and round, with black cherry flavors and a hint of black currant shaded by spice and tar accents. The dense tannins are well-integrated and the fruit and spice notes play out on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2023. 2,050 cases made.
