Very pretty depth of fruit with walnut, plum and tea aromas and flavors. Medium body, integrated tannins and a ultra-fine finish. Very classy riserva. Drink now.
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. (ML)
Located in the southern reaches of Chianti Classico, Castello di Bossi can trace its history back to the 9th century. Marco Bacci purchased the property in 1998 and works with consulting oenologist Alberto Antonini. The Riserva is a decidedly savoury offering, exuding leather, earth and iron wrapped around wild forest berries. The firm tannic spine gives balance to the ripe fruit. A very satisfying Classico Riserva that will pair well with game and mushroom dishes. (MM)
The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo is loaded with character. Sweet red cherry, game, tobacco, licorice, herbs and game lend aromatic intrigue and tons of nuance. Overall, this is a fairly understated vintage for the Riserva, but all the elements come together nicely. The 2013 will drink well for another decade-plus. (AG)
