Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Cancelli's perfect balance of acid and fruit, and soft and harmonious finish complements many kinds of cuisine.

Intense ruby red color, with purplish blue hues. Powerful on the nose, with aromas of cherry and ripe red fruits, accompanied by delicate hints of pepper. On the palate it is fresh, fragrant, with elegant, pleasantly persistent tannins.

Grape varieties: Sangiovese 70% - Syrah 30%

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.
