Winemaker Notes

Badia a Passignano is produced exclusively from the highest quality grapes grown on the estate of the same name, situated in the Chianti Classico area. The badia (or "abbey"), is located in an area that has been inhabited since the Etruscan period and is one of the finest fortified abbeys in the area. It has been renowned for its wine production for more than 1,000 years.

Intense ruby red color with scents of red fruit, licorice and ripe blackberries. The palate is well-balanced and complex with good acidity and elegant fruit flavors. The 2006 vintage is a stylish wine, palate-filling with smooth tannins and distinctive flavors, with a long, lingering finish.

RP 89
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Riserva is a pretty, juicy red laced with cherries, dried flowers, tobacco and underbrush. The tannins dry out a touch on the finish, which is the only thing that keeps the score from going higher. Still, this forward, fruit-driven Chianti should drink nicely over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016.
WS 88
Wine Spectator
Blackberry aromas, with hints of rose and cedar, lead to a medium body, with a lovely density of fruit and some milk chocolate notes. This has a silky texture and a medium finish. Best from 2010 through 2015.

Antinori
The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 625th anniversary as wine makers in 2010. The current company president, Marchese Piero Antinori, believes in the tradition that the primary role of wine is to accompany food and enhance the dining experience. In Florence, the Antinori family has led a "Renaissance" in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
