Intense ruby-red in color with garnet highlights, Corbaia offers jammy aromas of black currant, cherry, and cassis backed by hints of tobacco, chocolate, and coffee. On the palate, the powerful Corbaia is supple and layered with rich texture and well-integrated tannins.
The perfect choice for wild boar, game, steaks and roast beef.
Blend: 70% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2008 Corbaia is striking in this vintage. A delicate, Graceful bouquet gives the impression of femininity, until layers of fruit hit the palate with relentless energy and focus. The 2008 impresses for its balance and overall sense of harmony. The tannins are still huge at this stage, but I sense that as they melt away the wine’s true pedigree will begin to emerge. This is a great, great showing from Castello di Bossi, Corbaia is 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in new French oak barrels.
