Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Intense, deep red color with light pomegranate glints. Delicate aroma with scents of wild blackberries and pleasant, spicy notes. Balanced, full flavored, with good acidity. Great aging potential.

Suggested pairings include ribollita (Tuscan bread, bean, and vegetable soup), wild game, and stews, as well as aged cheeses and chocolate.

Critical Acclaim

"Fascinating style of cedar, berry, cherries and plums follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and an almost oily mouth feel. Love the finish. This is balanced, sexy and seductive. Pure Sangiovese. Made from organic grapes. Drink now but will improve with age for years to come. "
95 Points

"The 2007 Sangioveto di Toscana is another wine that comes across as relatively understated and quite classic relative to most 2007s. There is gorgeous delineation in an expressive fabric of sweet red cherries and flowers, with hints of tobacco and cedar that flow effortlessly. The wine turns radiant on the mid-palate and finish. The 2007 is one of the most elegant Sangiovetos I have tasted from Badia a Coltibuono and hopefully points to a more consistent level of overall quality for the future. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. "

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.

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
