Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant and deep ruby-red in colour. On the nose it has notes of blackberries. It is full, soft and well-structured on the palate. It has a well-balanced acidity and a clean and persistent aftertaste.

2004 was characterized by a "traditional" climate where alternating periods of atmospheric disturbance and stability provided temperatures in line with historical averages. The spring rains and hot summer resulted in excellent grape quality.

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.
