Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Syrah, it is intense ruby-red in color with violet hues. It has a fresh aroma of berries with a peppery note. On the palate it is supple and velvety with good structure and moderate acidity.

About Badia a Coltibuono:

Badia a Coltibuono, or "The Abbey of good harvest," lies in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, between Florence and Siena. The Abbey is approximately two thousand years old, but history records date the property back to the Etruscan civilizations of the 3rd century BC. Today, the estate is composed of vineyards, chestnut, walnut and olive trees, all of them lying on one of the best sites in the Chianti area, where the soil is very rich and the climate is mild and sunny all year round. Badia a Coltibuono is very proud to produce some of Tuscany's finest and most noble wines.
