Castello di Bossi is located in the southern half of the Chianti Classico appellation in Castelnuovo Berardenga. The area’s wines tend to be fuller and more highly structured than those of the rest of the Chianti Classico zone, closely resembling those of Montalcino area. The Castello di Bossi estate extends over 510 hectares, 124 of which are under vineyards. Castello di Bossi’s three principal grapes varietals are Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The predominant terrains are tuffs, yellow clays, calcareous sands and broken stones. The average elevation of the vineyards is about 350 metres above sea level, while their exposure varies from southeast to west. Bossi Castle is located in the centre of the estate. The first tower, built in about 1099, shows the area’s strategic importance. In about 1450, the early keep was expanded into the 4 walled fortresses, that visitors can still see today. With a history dating back to the 9th century AD, Castello di Bossi estate has evolved with the times. A dynamic team leads the estate and never shies from technological innovation while remaining true to the terroir of Chianti.
