BADIA A COLTIBUONO 'MONTEBELLO' TOSCANA
BADIA A COLTIBUONO

11% blend each of Sangiovese,Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Colorino, Malvasia Nera, Pugnitello, Mammolo and Sanforte from 16- to 28-year-old vines.

This wine is the result of a long research and experimental period in the recovery and growth of historical heirloom grape varieties from Chianti, many of which were rarely cultivated. The 9 grape types that make up Montebello are grown in Monti in Chianti, where Badia a Coltibuono has been cultivating its best vines for centuries.

Each grape variety is harvested and fermented separately in 500 L open top barrels with indigenous yeast and manual punchdowns. Wine is first aged in barrels and then assembled for a final maturation in cask for 12 to 16 months followed by 6 months minimum in bottle before release.
