Firm and racy merlot with fine tannins that are polished and pretty. Medium body. Lovely walnut undertones to the dark fruit. Some chocolate, too. Give it a year or two to soften. Try after 2023. ... More details

Rated 92 by Vinous Media
The 2018 Girolamo, 100% Merlot, speaks with a decidedly Tuscan accent. Dried herbs, cedar, scorched earth and leather add aromatic dimension to the rich, dark Merlot fruit. Potent and lush, Girolamo is another strong wine in this range from Castello di Bossi.
Winery
Deep ruby red in color with purple highlights, Girolamo offers sumptuous aromas of black raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, sweet spice, and vanilla with hints of chocolate and dried herbs. On the palate, Girolamo has a soft and silky texture, backed by sweet, firm tannins ending with a long, fruit-laden finish.

Region: Tuscany

The beautiful region of Tuscany has been associated with wine production for almost three thousand years, and as such is one of the oldest and most highly respected wine producing regions in the world. The hot, sunny climate supports quite a wide range of grapes, but the grape varietals most widely grown across this large region are Sangiovese and Vernaccia, both of which are used in the production of Tuscany's most distinctive red and white wines. Cabernet Sauvignon and other imported grape varietals have also flourished there for over two hundred years, but it wasn't until the 1970's and the rise of the 'Super Tuscans' that they were widely used, when the fine wineries of the region began experimenting with Bordeaux style red wines to great effect.

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.
