Winemaker's Notes

Intense ruby red color, a wide range of fruity aromas on the nose with nicely expressed hints of liquorice and ripe blackberries. The palate is very well-balanced and complex with good acidity, elegantly backed up by the fruit. When released the Badia a Passignano 2005 was very stylish and well-rounded with characteristic integrity and distinctively lingering throughout the tasting.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Chianti Classico Riserva Badia a Passignano is a rich, dense wine loaded with dark fruit, new leather, tobacco, earthiness, smoke and sweet spices. This juicy, plump red reveals excellent persistence and a long finish in a surprisingly concentrated style for this vintage. The wine can be enjoyed today or cellared for a few years for readers who prefer more tertiary complexity. The Chianti Classico Badia a Passignano is Sangiovese that spends 14 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015. "
