Sold Out

Sangiovese-Italy-Tuscany

Intense, deep ruby red color with subtle glimmers of garnet. The wine shows a splendid, full nose with hints of blackberries and pleasant notes of tobacco and spice. In the mouth, the wine is soft with an elegant, fresh finish and a persistent, generous acidity in the aftertaste. Full of mature tannins and fruitiness. Italy.

Saturated red. Spicy nuances of bay leaf, oregano, and clove complement dark cherry and underbrush aromas.  Suave and fine-grained, with lovely inner-mouth energy, this refined Chianti is savory rather than sweet, with flavors of dark fruits and minerals dominating. The long finish shows broad tannins and a suggestion of menthol austerity.

The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva is gorgeous, especially for a vintage that was not easy. Black cherries, mint, licorice and tobacco are supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins and lively acidity, both of which should allow the wine to age gracefully for a number of years. The 2008 could still use another year or two to soften, but it is gorgeous, even today. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.

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.
