Winemaker Notes

The 2015 Badia a Passignano shows an intense ruby red color. The nose expresses notes of ripe red fruit and intense hints of berry fruit and cherries under spirits along with the spicy and balsamic sensations. The wine is ample and enveloping on the palate with supple and velvety tannins; the freshness is excellent as well, as are the finesse and the length on the finish and aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is a pure expression of Sangiovese. This wine is distinguished by a beautiful level of openness and softness (on the Sangiovese spectrum, which means you also get a bright dose of acidity). The wine offers beautiful balance between its dark fruit and savory spice comments.
JS 94
James Suckling
A 2015 red with opulent dark fruits such as ripe raspberries and black currants follow through to medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a deliciously fresh finish. Just the right acid and fruit balance to give it nerve and brillance. Drink in 2021.
D 93
Decanter
Antinori's Badia a Passignano estate is located in the commune of San Casciano Val di Pesa, just 3 kilometres south of Tenuta Tignanello. It boasts predominately calcareous soil and is planted with clones selected from Tignanello's vineyards. Rich fruit references the warm summer but it's girdled by sleek, polished tannins. Currently swathed in heady spice and balsamic herbs, this needs another year to reveal the full spectrum of its nuances and will give plenty of drinking pleasure for at least a decade after that.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A traditional style, this red exhibits cherry, plum, leather and tobacco flavors. The wood aging lends dryness to the tannins now, yet there is an essence of ripe fruit midpalate and a lot of energy on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2042.

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.

Chianti Classico Wine

Tuscany, Italy

View all products

One of the first wine regions anywhere to be officially recognized and delimited, Chianti Classico is today what was originally defined simply as Chianti. Already identified by the early 18th century as a superior zone, the official name of Chianti was proclaimed upon the area surrounding the townships of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole, just north of Siena, by Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany in an official decree in 1716.

However, by the 1930s the Italian government had appended this historic zone with additonal land in order to capitalize on the Chianti name. It wasn’t until 1996 that Chianti Classico became autonomous once again when the government granted a separate DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) to its borders. Ever since, Chianti Classico considers itself no longer a subzone of Chianti.

Many Classicos are today made of 100% Sangiovese but can include up to 20% of other approved varieties grown within the Classico borders. The best Classicos will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and be full-bodied with plenty of ripe fruit (plums, black cherry, blackberry). Also common among the best Classicos are expressive notes of cedar, dried herbs, fennel, balsamic or tobacco.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
