2009 Castello di Bossi Corbaia Toscana

SKU #1188842 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Made with Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2009 Corbaia is a richly layered red that reveals elegant tones of red rose, cherry, freshly milled black pepper, prune and dried blackberry. This is a multifaceted and fascinating wine with a firm tannic backbone surrounded by fleshy fruit, bitter chocolate and exotic spice. The 2009 vintage shows a uniquely plump quality of fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. (ML)  (8/2013)

94 points Vinous

 The 2009 Corbaia is surprisingly closed down for the vintage. Today, the tannins are quite imposing, but not enough to obscure the wine's considerable depth and purity of fruit. Raspberry jam, grilled herbs and new leather flesh out on the imposing finish. Readers will have to give the 2009 at least a few years in bottle. Once again, Corbaia is a stunner. Over the years, this 70% Sangiovese/30% Cabernet Sauvignon blend has been one of the best kept secrets in Tuscany. (AG)  (8/2013)

93 points James Suckling

 The currants and fresh herb aromas here are captivating. The wine is full-bodied, with integrated tannins and a berry, vanilla and spice aftertaste. Lots of new wood showing on the finish but will melt together at the end with a little bottle age. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon.  (8/2012)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 *CELLAR SELECTION* Too young to drink now, this blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon shows all the requisites to be an age-worthy wine. The quality of the fruit is rich, the acidity is bright, and the tannins will carry the wine forward during its slow evolution.  (4/2013)
