The Castello di Bossi is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, which for centuries has been one of the most celebrated wine growing areas of Tuscany. Praised for its art and culture, captivating landscapes, and glorious wine and food, their Gran Selezione is a clear winner offering complex aromas of dark cherry, raspberry and sweet violets. Sourced from carefully-selected vineyards, this Tuscan red represents the iconic elegance of a traditional Chianti Classico, while possessing cellar worthy attributes. "Gran Selezione" is a new classification in Chianti Classico that was introduced a few years ago when winemakers wanted a tier higher than Riserva. The quality and aging goes beyond Chianti Classico Riserva, with a minimum of 30 months in oak and three months in bottle before release. The wines must be made from estate grown grapes of a single vineyard, or a selection of the estate's best parcels. Castello di Bossi's Gran Selezione is drop-dead gorgeous, a potenital Wine Spectator Wine of the Year, and a must have for any Italian wine lover!
"A solidly built red, this has a purity to the cherry, strawberry, rose, mineral and herb aromas and flavors. The muscular finish begs for more time for the beautiful fruit to assimilate. Offers excellent balance and length. Best from 2025 through 2042." The Wine Spectator, 96 Points
