Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico 2015


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

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

Wine EnthusiastEditors' Choice. Intense aromas of fragrant purple flower, crushed berry, menthol and cake spice steal the spotlight while the tight, savory palate doles out juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and tobacco. Taut, fine-grained tannins provide the framework. Drink through 2023.

Wine SpectatorAn elegant red, this exudes cherry and strawberry fruit and tobacco, spice, wild herb and mineral flavors, all backed by dense, dusty tannins. Shows fine length and potential. Better than previously reviewed. Drink now through 2028. 12,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico is a beautifully bright and lively expression of Sangiovese (with 10% Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo and Colorino). This wine makes great use of the extra heat of the vintage to present compact but rich fruit detailing. The acidity is there and so is that carefully executed balance between fruit and structure. In all, this is a mid-weight effort that keeps the palate clean and refreshed. Badia a Coltibuono offers great value here.
