Cherry and fresh berries are integrated with elegant and balanced tannins. Good acidity and mineral expression on the long, persistent finish.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The easy going 2010 Chianti Classico opens with distinctive aromas of forest floor and crushed clove. Wild berries and button mushrooms help fill in the rear. The mouthfeel is streamlined and bright. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016  (Aug 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Made with organic grapes, this shows violet and toasted aromas of coffee and carob. The palate delivers dense, dark fruit with hints of orange peel, herbs and well-integrated oak. It’s tightly knit, with lithe tannins. (Oct 2013)

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
Organic, estate-grown Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo and Colorino from 10-35 years old vines planted in the Poggino, Vignone, Montebello and Argenina parcels to 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, it 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.
