Review:
The 2013 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva Bossona is a dense, powerful wine. Brooding and muscular in the glass, the Bossona speaks with authority. Black cherry, gravel, smoke and licorice add to an impression of gravitas.

Review:
Dei's 10ha Bossona vineyard is a south-facing amphitheatre located at 350-400 metres above sea level. Characterised by sandy limestone soil rich in marine fossils, it is planted exclusively to Sangiovese. Pure and precise, the 2013 offers captivating nuances of forest floor, violets and baking spice with intense cherry and flinty minerality. Layers of fruit are framed by assertive, chalky tannins that still need a couple of years to relax their grip.
