Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red in color with lots of berries. Full bodied yet soft with deep cherry and blackberry aromas, predominated by flavors of fresh fruit on the palate. This wine combines perfectly with the culinary tradition of the area. Recommended with flavorful pasta dishes and wild game but an excellent accompaniment to most Mediterranean cuisine.

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.
