The coloris bright ruby, the nose unveils layers of iris, violet, tobacco, black pepper and marasca cherry. The taste is well balanced, tightly knit with supple tannins, mineral notes, a mouth cleansing fresh acidity. Warm and persistent.
Robert Parker: The 2013 Chianti Classico shows all the signature traits of the Badia a Coltibuono winemaking style. The wine shows a good sense of inner elegance and poise with cassis, red currant, spice, cola and rosemary twig. This is one of the most beautiful properties in Tuscany with wild forests and unexplored bush at its perimeters. The wine shows fine tannins and a silky style. This base Chianti Classico is alway a great value buy, but you get even more bang for you buck thanks to the balanced 2013 vintage.
This wine, made from selected Sangiovese vineyards, is the result of collaboration with a small number of local producers, located in the best Chianti Classico micro-zones. The selected grapes go through the vinification process separately and are then aged for a few months in casks of French oak and barriques from Allier. This is followed by a period of refinement in the bottle.
Wine maker notes
This wine, with ICEA organic certification from 2003, is the result of absolutely natural production methods using hand-picked organically grown Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes from our vineyards at Badia a Coltibuono. It is considered to be one of the most representative wines of the Chianti Classico appellation.

Technical notes
Organically farmed, estate-grown Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo and Colorino from 10-35 years old vines planted on clay and limestone rock were hand-picked and hand-sorted at the winery. Fermented in stainless steel and macerated on its skins for three weeks, the wine was aged for 12 months in French and Austrian oak.

Producer
For almost 1000 years Badia a Coltibuono, literally meaning ”abbey of good culture”, has been producing high quality wines in the district of Gaiole in Chianti. After WWII Piero Stucchi Prinetti transformed Badia a Coltibuono into a modern wine estate. They are dedicated to Sangiovese and Chianti Classico’s unique terroir through organic farming practices, clonal diversity and the restrained use of new oak. There are two separate wine companies - Badia a Coltibuono for wines made from its estate grown grapes and Coltibuono for its Stucchi Selections, made from grapes purchased through long-term relationships with respected growers in Tuscany. In 2000 Badia a Coltibuono converted its estate vineyards to organic farming practices. All of its grapes are hand-picked.
