Tasting room: SìWine Shop: SìTenuta Bossi, owned by the Gondi family since 1592, has always been famous for its wine. Located in the wooded hills north-east of Florence, in the heart of Chianti Rufina, a wine-growing area famous since Etruscan times. This gem is located in a vineyard valley, among the hills 18 km from Florence, between 200 and 400 metres above sea level. The estate covers 315 hectares of which 19 hectares are vineyards and 32 hectares olive groves, as well as cereals and woods. The majestic Renaissance villa, which dominates the valley with its monumental park and cellars, was restored and modified in the centuries following its purchase. Next to the villa, a church with three altars was built by Antonino Gondi. The family has believed in the territory in which this reality is immersed, the Chianti Rufina, which makes the wine produced here unique and recognisable. The current owners, the 25th generation of winemakers at Tenuta Bossi, are Marquis Bernardo Gondi and his sister Donatella, assisted by Bernardo’s sons, Gerardo and Lapo. They continue the family tradition by trying to maintain what their ancestors have always done, preserving the integrity and beauty of the environment in which the estate is located and continuing the philosophy that has always distinguished Tenuta Bossi: the continuous search for the highest quality products. Like skilled artisans, romantic vignerons, they mould the grapes into wine, giving it a soul that makes their wines unique.
