Castello di Bossi

Rich ruby red, lightly flecked with purple. Superb nose, with lovely ripe fruit in full evidence, rich raspberry preserve to the fore. Excellent progression on the palate, with flavours that seem to grow exponentially; exceptionally well-textured, with a silky denseness. The fruit-laced finish nicely mirrors its nose.

Wine Enthusiast

Girolamo is a Merlot from the southern part of Chianti Classico that does a remarkable job of being modern and delicate at the same time. On the one hand, you get rich notes of chocolate, cherry and coffee, but on the other, you get ethereal nuances of blueberry, spice and cola. Ready to drink.

Score: 93. —Monica Larner, April 01, 2008.

Wine Advocate

The Girolamo (100% Merlot) is a fat, juicy wine packed with jammy blueberry and blackberry sensations on a full-bodied frame. It offers outstanding length and plenty of structure, only the hard tannins typical of the vintage keep the score from going higher. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2015.

Score: 91. —Antonio Galloni, June 2007.

Wine Spectator

Beautiful blackberry and toasty oak. Medium-bodied and a little lean, with smoke and fruit character and a medium finish. Merlot. Best after 2006.

Score: 88. —James Suckling, October 31, 2006.
