Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico DOCG 2020, Tuscany, Italy

Respect for biodiversity, for the health of the workers and for the environment are the cornerstones from which Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico is born. In the heart of the Sienese part of Chianti Classico, from our vineyards in Monti (Gaiole) and Vitignano (CastelnuovoBerardenga) we harvest Sangiovese grapes from our massale selection with small quantities of complementary grapes. The vinification takes place with spontaneous yeasts in the modern cellar of Monti using delicate techniques to maximize the expression of the complexity and balance of these grapes. A wine with a strong but gentle structure that is the expression of Sangiovese and its pleasantness. For its long history and its consistency over time it is considered one of the reference points of the denomination. Soil: clay and limestone rock. Grape varieties: Sangiovese and traditional grapes. vinification: Fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Cap managed with punchdown. Marceration on the skins for 3 weeks.

The taste is well balanced, tightly knit with supple tannins, mineral notes, a mouth cleansing fresh acidity. Warm and persistent.
