(From 2013 Vintage) The Badia a Coltibuono Riserva, our most classic wine, is made exclusively from autoctonous grapes. It is loved by wine aficionados worldwide and is considered to be a true emblem of the Chianti territory. As a testimony to its long history and traditions, the estate is the proud possessor of a unique patrimony of old Riserva wines which date back as far as 1937. Unfortunately wines preceding this vintage were lost during the Second World War. - See more at: http://en.coltibuono.com/badia-a-coltibuono-1/wine/badia-a-coltibuono-riserva/2011#sthash.oB9AoWZC.dpuf
Intense ruby red in color. The bouquet is fruity with scents of iris and violet. This is a robust, well balanced and structured Chianti with deep cherry flavors and firm tannins. Recommended with hearty vegetable soups and pastas in meat sauces. Excellent with grilled meat and game as well as aged cheeses.
Ken's Wine Guide(From 2005 Vintage) This bright ruby wine opens with a very bright cherry bouquet with hints of oak and pepper. On the palate, this light to medium bodied wine is round, juicy, savory, with soft plum and berry flavors....
