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.

Tasting notes
Ruby red color with hints of cherry and fresh berries in the nose. Balanced tannins with good acidity and a long, persistent finish.

 Wine Enthusiast 88 points (Jun 2009)
This real Chianti Classico immediately brings to mind the elegant beauty of Tuscany. The wine is streamlined and tight yet generous in its portrayal of wild berries, white almonds and delicate spice. Fresh and long-lasting, it would pair with hand-kneaded gnocchi with spinach and ricotta cheese.

Technical notes
Aged 12 months in French and Austrian oak.
