Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red in color with a bouquet that exhibits berry and floral aromas. Round and soft with medium body, good acidity and balanced tannins. Recommended with beef sauteed in spicy sauce and Tuscan herbs. Also popular in Tuscany with artichoke and sausage soufflé.

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.
