Deep ruby in color with garnet lights that hint at the wine's extended barrel aging, Castello di Bossi Gran Selezione is explosive in its intensity and yet the wine manages an astounding complexity and finesse. Aromas of rich black cherry and plum integrate well with cedar, sweet cooking spices, chocolate and saddle leather. On the palate the wine is fleshy and dense. The finish achieves great balance and very pronounced length. This is a wine that will age with grace for many years. Match Castello di Bossi Gran Selezione with robust main courses. Roasted and grilled meats pair easily with Gran Selezione while well-seasoned cheeses and hardy vegetable-based stews broaden the scope.

Full-bodied and elegantly structured, this 100% Sangiovese, made with organically farmed grapes, has enticing aromas of violet, pipe tobacco, new leather and camphor. On the savory palate, fine-grained tannins accompany dried cherry, blood orange, licorice and mocha. Drink 2023-2028.

The 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Bossi is a soft, easygoing wine. Sweet red cherry, mint, tobacco, dried herbs and mint give this mid-weight Gran Selezione good aromatic presence to match its accessible personality. The 2018 is not terribly complex, but it's not bad, either. I just expect more at this level. As should you.
