Dark ruby color with shades of purple. Very intense nose with bouquet of balsamic, flowery violet, iris, spices, red fruits, vanilla and cloves. On the palate it reveals its great structure, dry and savory supported by balanced acidity, warm and persistent with great aging potential. Supple tannins become refinement of taste, soft and velvety by time.

Badia a Coltibuono or "the abbey of the good harvest," was founded by the monks of Vallombrosa about a thousand years ago, as a place of worship and meditation. In 1051, the monks of Vallombrosa began to build the monastery of the "Good Harvest" at the same time planting the first vines in this area. Coltibuono In the fifteenth century had a revival under the patronage of Lorenzo de 'Medici. In 1810, under Napoleonic rule, the monks were forced to leave Coltibuono. In the following years the property was first sold through a lottery in 1846 and was bought by Michele Giuntini, Florentine banker and ancestor of the present owners. Under the leadership of Piero Stucchi Prinetti the farm was converted into a company establishing itself in Italy and abroad. Today the children Roberto, Emanuela and Paul continue the work undertaken by their ancestors more than a century ago.
