"The 2006 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico Occhio di Pernice is one of the best wines I have tasted from Badia a Coltibuono in some time. Sweet, dark and voluptuous, the 2006 shows all of the richness of a 100% Sangiovese Vin Santo, yet also possesses remarkable restraint for such a big wine, with plenty of intensity but no excess weight. A bevy of leather, licorice and clove notes round out the silky, mid-weight finish."

Badia a Coltibuono

100% Sangiovese from Monti in Chianti

This wine's name means “Partridge eye” due to its garnet color with an amber edge. It is made from organically farmed, carefully hand-picked grapes planted in the best vineyards of the Chianti Classico region. The vines are 20-30 years old, situated on ideal southwest facing slopes at 250-270 meters above sea level. Soils consist of clay and limestone rock.

Bunches are carefully selected and left to dry in well-ventilated rooms. Fermentation with wild yeast and aging take place in small oak casks, which are sealed and kept exposed to the seasonal variations in temperature. The finished wine ages 8 years in cask and oak barriques.(2300 bts)

2006 Vintage
A rainy spring with ups and downs in temperature was followed by a dry, sultry summer with high temperatures. During harvest moderate temperatures with cool nights resulted in optimal maturation and healthy grape clusters. Harvest period took place from September 19 to October 11.
