ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO THE WINES OF ITALY 2021 AND MARQUISES GONDI
The Marchesi Gondi - Tenuta Bossi, won other awards, in fact, the Essential Guide to Vinid'Italia 2021 published by Doctor Wine, evaluated the Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG "VillaBossi 2016" with 93/100 and finally the Chianti Rufina Riserva Cardinal de Retz 2007 with 92/100.
The Cardinal de Retz 2007 is amber in colour with intense nuances. Great olfactory intensity with a remarkable complexity and breadth of perfumes. The soft notes of dried fig and apricot, almond, caramel, candied orange peel, date and chestnut honey close with a sweet spiciness and a slightly ethereal finish. The taste is sweet, soft and round with elegance and strength. Interesting the balance of taste that on a structure completely managed by an elegant note-alcoholic finds a supporting freshness. The finish is very long with the re-proposition of all those notes perceived by the nose, in particular dry dialbic acid.
