Marchesi Gondi

Immersed in the enchanting hills of the Chianti Rùfina a few km from Florence, Tenuta Bossi, purchased by the Gondi family back in 1592, has always been one of the most interesting realities in the area for the production of high quality wines.

The real turning point for the company , however, took place in the second half of the nineteenth century, after the death of Francesco Gondi. Following the tragic event, the ownership of the estate passes to his wife Marie de la Bruyère, a woman of great personality who expands the cellar and adopts the French winemaking techniques, which allow her son Carlo to participate in the first Paris Expo of 1889, winning many prizes. Marie's project included fermentation in cement vats and the production of two particular wines: a red wine called "Bourgogne type", obtained from Sangiovese grapes and other indigenous vines of greater longevity and a white wine "Sauternes type".

Among the wines of Villa Bossi, characterized by a good structure and an excellent aromatic profile conferred by the mild temperature and by the great temperature range between night and day, the elegant Chianti Rufina DOCG Riserva Villa Bossi stands out , a wine symbol of the estate, which can be with good reason considered "descendant" of Marie de la Bruyère's "Bourgogne type" wine.
