Another splendid recognition arrives to the Marchesi Gondi – Tenuta Bossi, in fact the news comes from Guida Vini d’Italia 2021 published by Gambero Rosso, which awarded with 2 glasses the Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG Villa Bossi 2016, Rosso dei colli della Toscana centrale IGT Mazzaferrata 2015 and Ser Amerigo 2015 and Vinsanto del Chianti Rufina DOC Riserva Cardinal de Retz 2007.
The Cardinal de Retz 2007 is amber in color with intense tawny hues. Great olfactory intensity with a remarkable complexity and breadth of aromas. The soft notes of dried fig and apricot, almond, caramel, candied orange peel, date, chestnut honey end with a sweet spice and a slightly ethereal finish. The taste is sweet, soft and round with elegance and strength. The gustatory balance is interesting, which on a structure completely managed by an elegant alcoholic note finds a supporting freshness. The finish is very long with a revival of all those notes perceived on the nose, in particular of dried apricot.
