Vino Nobile Riserva Bossona is one of the highest expressions of our land. Its grapes come from the vineyard of the same name, one of the most suitable, planted by Caterina’s grandfather, Alibrando, in 1961. The wine became a Riserva in 1999, after long ageing in wood and in the bottle. It is without doubt one of the estate’s flagship wines, a symbol of the elegance and grace of Sangiovese in Montepulciano. The yields are very low (about 40 quintals per hectare) and the wine is bottled with the label Bossona Riserva only in the best vintages.


TASTING NOTES
A wine with a complex, elegant and balanced structure. Ruby in colour tending towards garnet, with intense and elegant aromas, with hints of violets, underbrush and spices, it has a character of finesse, with firm, velvety tannins and a long, deep finish.
