"The 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva delivers thick lines and more muscle than past vintages. Badia a Coltibuono is known for its streamlined, nuanced and elegant wines. They tend to be thinner in color and consistency in keeping with Sangiovese tradition. This vintage was warmer and the quality of fruit is slightly more pronounced as a result. Black cherry and cassis are followed by cola and grilled herb. Winemaking is simple and straightforward. -ML"

Badia a Coltibuono

The Badia a Coltibuono Riserva is one of the estate's flagship wines, only made in the best vintages. The southwest facing vineyard consists of clay and limestone rock with 35+ year old vines. The fruit is all hand-harvested followed by native yeast fermentation. The wine then spends 24 months in French and Austrian oak casks of varying sizes, followed by a period of at least 4 months of bottle age before release. (32,000 bts)

2011 Vintage
A long summer drought was followed by the earliest harvest on record. The season resulted in excellent quality with elegant, intense wines. Harvest lasted August 30 - October 10.
