Winemaker Notes

The wine, one with an important impact, shows an intense ruby red in its tonality. It is complex on the nose with aromas of red berry fruit, raspberries, blackberries, and ripe cherries in addition to its notes of spice and licorice on the finish. The flavors are ripe and sweet and are sustained by substantial tannins, round and ample in support of the supple and velvety structure. Long and persistent, its tonic acidity is a classic characteristic of the Sangiovese cultivated at the Badia a Passignano.

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling
A wine with minerals, light herbs, spices and blueberries. Hints of walnuts. Full body, fine tannins and a long, long finish. Really excellent. Drink now.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Newly promoted to Grand Selezione status, the 2009 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano shows evolved tones of charred earth, dried cherry, chewing tobacco, tar, black olive and toasted hazelnut. Dusty spice and crushed mineral appear as the wine warms in the glass. The wine stills needs time to fully blossom and soften the remaining tannic sharpness.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Made entirely with Sangiovese, this wine starts with scents of blue flower, plum, leather and spice. The palate delivers juicy black cherry and raspberry layered with vanilla and dark chocolate notes that add to the depth of flavors. The firm tannins are ripe and round, giving this structure but also a smooth texture.

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.
