2008 Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico Riserva

Winemaker's Notes

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. The Riserva is produced only on better vintages. Some of the most noteworthy are: ‘59, ‘64, ‘66, ‘71, ‘75, ‘83, 85, ‘88, ‘90, ‘93, ‘95, ’97, ’99, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008.

    Classic Sangiovese nose. Nice fruit but light body on the tongue with a delicate but notable finish. Blueberry with hint of clove? Rusty garnet color.
