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: 14.0%

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

Dark ruby color with shades of purple. Very intense nose with bouquet of balsamic, flowery violet, iris, spices, red fruits, vanilla and cloves. On the palate it reveals its great structure, dry and savory supported by balanced acidity, warm and persistent with great aging potential. Supple tannins become refinement of taste, soft and velvety by time.

Critical Acclaim

"This wine feels healthy and brisk, a substantial sangiovese that’s structured without any obvious edges, the tannins and acidity firm and complementary. That structure allows the fruit to extend into a range of reds, a tessellation of shades from strawberry to pomegranate. Clean and fragrant, this is a pleasure to drink now and will develop further in bottle."
92 Points

"The 2009 Sangioveto is quite closed in on itself today. There is plenty of depth and richness in the glass, but little of the radiance and openness found in so many 2009s. Readers will need to be patient. Hints of cedar, tobacco and leather emerge over time, but only with great reluctance."

Learn About Badia a Coltibuono Map ItMap It

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...
