Walnuts, red cherry essence, mahogany, roasted coffee beans and some meaty elements on the nose and the palate. This full-bodied red opens to fine and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. A beauty now, but it will improve with age. Try in 2020. ... More details

The 2015 Corbaia is a 70-30 blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon that opens to rich and beautiful dark fruit opulence. This is a silky, velvety wine with layers of dried blackberry, plum, spice, leather and a touch of dusty mocha or chocolate. There is a soft and succulent side to this wine, but you also get the firm tannic structure needed for more cellar evolution. Some 15,000 bottles were made.

The 2015 Corbaia, Castello di Bossi's Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, is bright and full of drive. Iron, tobacco, chalk, smoke and white pepper give the red-toned Sangiovese fruit terrific energy and brightness. The 2015 shows terrific vibrancy and punch through to the finish.
Winery
Intense ruby-red in color with garnet highlights, Corbaia offers jammy aromas of black currants, cherries, and cassis backed by hints of tobacco, mocha, and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied yet supple and layered with a rich texture and well-integrated tannins.

Region: Tuscany

All over the stunning region of Tuscany in central Italy, you'll see rolling hills covered in green, healthy grapevines. This region is currently Italy's third largest producer of wines, but interestingly wineries here are generally happy with lower yields holding higher quality grapes, believing that they have a responsibility to uphold the excellent reputation of Tuscany, rather than let it slip into 'quantity over quality' wine-making as it did in the mid twentieth century. The region has a difficult soil type to work with, but the excellent climate and generations of expertise more than make up for this problem. Most commonly, Tuscan vintners grow Sangiovese and Vernaccia varietal grapes, although more and more varietals are being planted nowadays in order to produce other high quality wine styles.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
