Castello di Bossi Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Castello di Bossi|
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.
