Badia a Coltibuono Cultusboni RS Chianti Classico DOCG 2018, Tuscany, Italy

Today, the Badia a Coltibuono estate in the Chianti Classico commune of Gaiole in Chianti is led by the fifth generation of family members: Emanuela, Paolo, and Roberto Stucchi Prinetti. There are 150 acres of vineyards on the property, along with another 50 acres of olive trees. This being Chianti Classico, Sangiovese is naturally the most important grape variety planted. Cultusboni RS Chianti Classico was created with the goal of showing a more contemporary style of Chianti Classico made with only Sangiovese. Each year, the winery sources grapes from different areas in Chianti Classico, looking to build the complexity that comes from the many distinctive characters of Sangiovese in different terroirs. The winemaker likes this wine so much, he put his initials on it. With the 2018 vintage winery decided to update the brand name to Cultusboni, which shares the same meaning of Coltibuono or “good harvest” in Latin. 100% Sangiovese. Aged in oak barrels and casks.
