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.

The Antinori family bought the 800-acre estate around the abbey, which is owned by Vallombrosian monks, in 1987 including the use of the monastery cellars.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Austere and still reticent, this red nonetheless has the hallmarks of a terrific Chianti Classico. Intense and saturated with black cherry, black currant, olive, cedar and tobacco flavors that stand up to the beefy tannins. The vibrant acidity keeps this fluid and long. Best from 2020 through 2035.
JS 95
James Suckling
This is very dense, showing the ripeness of the 2013. Chocolate, black truffles and bark. Black cherries galore, too. Full-bodied, round and dense tannins and a flavorful finish. Better in 2020 but already gorgeous.
D 95
Decanter
Marchesi Antinori was founded by Giovanni di Piero Antinori in 1385. Today the company manages eight different estates in Tuscany, Orvieto and Franciacorta. The Badia a Passignano estate was bought by the Antinori family in 1987 and consists of 56ha of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah vines. Andrea Briccarello: Dark and intense red forest fruit aromas. In the mouth the wine is very attractive with plenty of fresh vibrant fruits and a subtle layer of spices. Great tannins and spicy undertones. Susan Hulme MW: Dusty cherries on the nose lead to a smooth, medium-bodied palate with a lingering savoury finish. May show more definition and focus with time, but already a beautifully balanced wine. Andrew Jefford: Close-grained, creamy and spicy, with finely defined red fruits and a citrussy, almost cologne-like sheen. Dense and arresting palate: a bolt from the black. Thundercrack-like intensity and intrinsic drama.

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.
