Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

The color is bright ruby. The nose unveils layers of iris, violet, tobacco, black pepper and marasca cherry. The taste is well balanced and tightly knit, showing supple tannins, mineral notes, and a mouth-cleansing fresh acidity. Warm and persistent. -Winery notes

A bit musty, chalky and lean on the nose some bright raspberry fruit and dusty framing notes. Clean and fresh in the mouth with great cut not he palate and mineral freshness to the vivid red berry fruit. This is long, juicy and clean, but is simple if in the classic high acid, energetic style. 87pts

Currently my favorite Chianti! I typically have this imported by the case. I'm not good with describing the tastes at this time but I hope to get better and come back to update my review.

A very light and feint nose with a palate to match- cherries and strawberries make this nice and easy drinking and perfect for light hors d'oeuvres

Good, reliable chianti classico. Tasty, tangy, medium bodied sangiovese. Does alright with pizza/pasta, but not the great pairing you'd expect. Almost a little bit of a cocktail chianti, definitely more fruit than acid.

From the famed Tuscan Estate, Badia Al Coltibuono Chianti Classico shows the deft balance between soft fruit character, acid, and tannin that we expect from the finest examples of the region.

Tight, linear, tonic and firm, this textbook Sangiovese opens a window on Chianti Classico tradition and territory. It’s an authentic wine on every level, from the purity of its aromas to its natural pairing ease with all sorts of meat and pasta dishes.

Bright red. Highly floral nose of redcurrant, sour red cherry and minerals shows a light, vinous quality. Then bright and mouthwatering on the palate, with a piercing laser beam of acidity lifting the delicate pomegranate and redcurrant flavors. Finishes fresh and long, with youthfully chewy tannins and lingering red fruit and violet notes. Typical fresh Chianti that’s just begging for you to start eating.

On the herbaceous side and high-toned, showing floral, berry and mineral flavors. This is distinctive and intense, gaining complexity with aeration. Decant now, or give this some time. Best from 2013 through 2020.

An intense ruby red colour, with aroma of cherry,tobacco, vanilla and a hint of spices, iris, violetsand leather. It has a pleasently lingering dryflavour with well balanced tanins and goodacidity.Recommended serving temperature: 18C
