Origin Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico
Brand Castello di Bossi
Alcohol/vol 14.5%
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.

A certified organic wine, the 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo offers bright aromas of dried cherry, forest berry, sweet spice and cinnamon. With fruit from beautiful Castelnuovo Berardenga on the southern side of the appellation, this wine shows medium-rich concentration and good texture with savory oak-driven elements. Production is 60,000 bottles.

The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo is a wild, potent wine. Black cherry, grilled herbs, leather, tobacco, smoke and incense bring out the darker side of Sangiovese. Deceptively medium in body, this brooding Riserva offers plenty of punch, even if it finishes feeling just a bit narrow.
