From Castelnuovo Berardenga in the southern part of this celebrated Tuscan wine appellation, the 2016 Chianti Classico is a deep and penetrating wine from an excellent vintage. This expression shows thick fiber and dense blackberry flavor with plum, prune and cassis. It exhibits inky, tarry intensity. The mouthfeel shows dry, dusty tannins for immediate drinking. Bottle production is large at 500,000 units, and the retail price is a steal.

93 pts James Suckling

There is some good richness to this Chianti Classico with blackberries, nutmeg, hazelnuts and a touch of spices and Christmas cake. Full body, ripe and round tannins, zesty acidity and a medium to long finish. Drink now.

88 pts Wine Spectator

Black cherry and blackberry flavors are accented by wild herb notes in this Chianti Classico. Mineral and tobacco accents chime in as the firm finish unfolds. Drink now through 2029.

88 pts Vinous

The 2016 Chianti Classico from Castello di Bossi is a soft, fruity wine to drink now and over the next few years. Sweet red berry and floral flavors are attractive, but it would be nice to see a bit more depth and overall complexity.
