BACCI WINES - Estates

Castello di Bossi

Castello di Bossi is located in the southern half of the Chianti Classico production zone, in the Comune of Castelnuovo Berardenga.
The first tower, built in the 1090, shows the area’s wearily strategic importance. In the 1450 the original structure was expanded into the 4 walled fortress visitors can see today. Castello di Bossi estate extends over 500 hectares, 120 of which are under vine. The average elevation of the vineyards is about 350 metres above sea level, while their exposure varies from southeast to west. The Sangiovese tends to be fuller and more highly structured than the ones of the rest of the Chianti Classico thanks to the mild climate of the area. The Cabernet and Merlot where planted about 40 years ago and probably are some of the oldest vines of this varietals planted in the Chianti Classico. The predominant soils are tuffs, yellow clays, calcareous sands and broken stones.

Girolamo IGT

Dense, glossy purple color. Great visual impact. The nose first picks up the spicy notes of cinnamon and cloves, leaving fruits such as currants the task of enhancing a complex bouquet exalted by oaky notes. The good tannic fabric is impressive. Balanced entry and acidic component balanced by a solid, but not aggressive, body. Lovely, long finish with pleasant, fresh notes.

Sautéed duck breast, Roast kid or lamb. Matured cheeses.

Vin San Laurentino IGT

Classic with its luminous, amber color. On the nose, the notes of dry figs and dry prunes open to those of almonds and hazelnuts, followed by tamarind and ending with the spicy hints of cloves and cinnamon. Mouth-filling palate. Creamy but not sugary, because vibrant and fresh-tasting. Very long finish with a fruity aftertaste.

Olio Extravergine di Oliva DOP Organic

Olive varieties
Frantoio, moraiolo, leccino and pendolino

 

Tasting notes
The colour is an intense green, with beautiful tonality. On the nose it expresses a strong fruity, very fresh fragrance, accompanied by a more nuanced sensation of vegetables, where the aroma of artichoke stands out. In the mouth it is enveloping but elegant, with a spicy aftertaste of medium intensity, persistent and pleasant.
