CASTELLO DI BOSSI BERARDO CHANTI CLASSICO RESERVA 2016


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.

Pair this wine with Korean short ribs, ragù sauces, gnocchi with roasted rabbit, and beef negimaki.

This is a very subtly played Chianti Classico Riserva that opens to reveal brambleberries, dried orange peel, vanilla, tobacco, cedar, spice box and grilled meats. Very structured on the palate with loads of firm tannins, coated with generous fruit and refreshened by cutting acidity. Drink from 2023.

This is a full and generous expression with dark fruit, dried blackberry, spice and lightly toasted nut. The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo is a classic mid-weight Tuscan red with lots of pretty freshness and firm tannins that are not at all astringent or bitter. I'm finding that some of these wines from Castello di Bossi are a bit clipped, hallow or short on the finish. That is the case here. Open it alongside an amatriciana with plenty of shaved pecorino.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo is laced with the essence of black cherry, plum, dried flowers, game, spice and leather. Surprisingly light for a Castelnuovo Berardenga Riserva, the 2016 is drinking quite well today. This is a decidedly restrained wine for the southern part of the appellation. There is good acidity, but less fruit and overall depth than I expected. Even so, all the elements are nicely put together. Drinking window: 2021 - 2029.

Aromas of ripe dark-skinned fruit, vanilla and leather shape the nose. The forward, juicy palate offers blackberry jam, mocha and licorice alongside grainy tannins.
