Wine Description

(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

    Medium ruby. Delicious smoky red berry and cherry aromas bear more than a passing resemblance to a Savigny-les-Beaune. Densely packed and only now beginning to open, with bright cherry and plum flavors tinged by a delicate herbaceousness. The bright, fairly long finish boasts good complexity and superb vinosity.
  • Decanter
    Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Intense cherry nose with some violets and grippy character. Refreshing wine with mid tannins and leathery finish. Drink up to 2011.
