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 ruby red color, the wine offers pretty aromas of red fruits and spices. Soft with balanced acidity.

 Wine Enthusiast 89 points (Oct 2013)
Here’s a luminous Chianti Classico, offering upfront wild cherry, violet and iris aromas. The bright palate delivers red cherry and cinnamon flavor alongside notes of truffle and licorice. Young and forward, this is already enjoyable.

Wine maker notes
This wine, made from selected Sangiovese vineyards, is the result of a collaboration with a small number of local producers, located in the best Chianti Classico micro-zones. It is intense and fruit-forward, ready for drinking immediately, but over time it gains an added complexity.

Technical notes
The parcels are vinified separately, blended and aged for a few months in French oak barrels and barriques. After bottling, the wine rests for a few months before release.
