Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva Bossona
Vino Nobile Riserva Bossona is one of the highest expressions of the Montepulciano DOCG. 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, with long ageing in wood and in the bottle. Without a doubt it is 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. The soil is of Pliocene origin, dating back 2.5-5 million years. It is rich in tuff, skeleton and fossils, which are not only strongly draining, but also give the wine structure and minerality. The Bossona vineyard is one of the sunniest areas of Montepulciano and its favourable exposure allows for excellent ripening of the grapes. The complex composition of the soil is perfect for Sangiovese, and the constant ventilation ensures that the grapes are healthy.
