Tenuta Bossi


On the wooded hills north east of Florence, and 18 km from the city, in the heart of the "Chianti Rufina" discrict that has been famous for its wines since the Renaissance, we find the TENUTA BOSSI. Its 320 hectares, streching altitudes ranging from 200 and 400 meters above sea level are dedicated to vineyards, olive groves, forests and grains. There is also the impressive, XV century villa that was enlarged and remodeled over the centuries. The Marchese Gondi acquired it from the Tolomei family in 1592 and extended their holdings in the area. Hence, the family has been producing "Chianti Rufina" wine for over four centuries. The estate has 18 hectares of vineyards where the grapes are carefully hervested and made into wine in the villa's cellars. The cellars are accessed via a large door at the front, facing the park with its many ancient trees. Here, after suitable aging in countless oak barrels and barriques the wines are bottle aged. When the recently replanted vineyards start to yield grapes, the estate will produce about 900/1000 hectoliters of wine Chianti Rufina, SuperTuscan, the Colli dell'Etruria Centrale white and rosé and Vin Santo. The 32 hectares dedicated to olive groves produce Laudemio, a fine extra virgin olive oil.
