3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Located in the Gaiole district of Chianti, Badia a Coltibuono, which translates to “Abbey of the Good Harvest”, was founded in the 11th century by Vallombrosan monks. The Stucchi Prinetti family purchased the 173 acre property from the church in 1846. Over the years, the family has strategically built a significant stock of ancient Sangiovese clones - this assures a continuous supply of quality grapes as well as clonal diversity. Wines for the Badia a Coltibuono line are made from estate fruit planted on clay and limestone rock soils in Monti in Chianti while grapes for Coltibuono selections are purchased from highly respected, local growers. The family remains dedicated to producing authentic expressions of Chianti - minimal use of oak, careful replanting of high-density vineyards, investment in a new state of the art winery and ICEA organic certification are testaments to their unwavering dedication to preserving the legacy of this historic property.

Tasting notes
An intense, deep red, the wine shows delicate aromas of wild blackberries and pleasant notes of spice. A full-bodied and balanced red with acidity that provides lift and verve to the long finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Aug 2013)
One of the most interesting wines in this flight, the 2009 Sangioveto offers a close read of Sangiovese tradition. The wine never colors outside its predetermined lines. It?s bright, berry aromas are appropriately matched to the crispness and weightlessness of the mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

Wine maker notes
‘San Zoveto’ which later became ‘Sangioveto’, was the name commonly used in the past in Chianti for the Sangiovese varietal. The Sangioveto di Coltibuono was created to honour a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages. It is only produced on better vintages. Some of the most noteworthy are: ‘82, ‘85, ‘88, ‘90, ’95, ‘97, 2001 and 2006.

Technical notes
The grapes were harvested from 25-55 years old vines planted in the estate’s oldest vineyard parcels, Montebello and Argenina. The fruit fermented in stainless steel with daily punch downs and was macerated on its skins for 4-5 weeks. It aged for 18-20 months in French oak barriques followed by an additional six months in bottle.
