2009 Castello di Bossi "Girolamo" Merlot Toscana

SKU #1193984 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wow. This wine shows an impressive depth of blackberries and blueberries with hints of wet earth. Full body, with chewy yet silky tannins and a long finish. This has structure as well as opulence. Merlot. Try in 2014. Inner quote mark (8/2012)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Powerful and voluptuous, the 2009 Girolamo is a landmark Merlot with quintessentially Tuscan characteristics of Mediterranean herb, wet terracotta and bright berry. The wine offers excellent fruit quality with optimal ripeness and compelling extraction. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. In my estimation, Marco Bacci’s Castello di Bossi delivers one of the absolute best interpretations of Chianti Classico from the Castelnuovo Berardenga subzone. Temperatures are a few degrees warmer here on average and soils are slightly richer and redder. These conditions favor dark and powerful wines. The challenge is maintaining balance and freshness – things regularly achieved in Marco Bacci’s wines. (ML) Inner quote mark (8/2013)

Outer quote mark Castello di Bossi's 2009 Merlot Girolamo is undeniably sexy. Plump, juicy and wonderfully expressive, the 2009 captures the very best qualities of the year. Dark cherries, plums, menthol and licorice all jump from the glass in this generous, inviting Tuscan Merlot. There is a lot to love about the 2009, starting with its impeccable balance. The purity of the fruit alone is striking. I am not sure how the 2009 is going to age, but it is drop-dead gorgeous today. Inner quote mark (8/2013)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Having spent two years in oak barrel, this Merlot has a generous, yet elegant shape, and it delivers intensity and elegance. The bouquet offers tones of black cherry, spice, chocolate and rum cake, with delicate accents of licorice and dried herb. The mouthfeel is smooth and rich. Inner quote mark (4/2013)
