Badia a Coltibuono has been engaged in the study and recovery of the native, ancient varieties. Paying homage to traditional Chianti wines (which could include up to 100 varieties), this is an assemblage of nine traditional varieties in equal proportions and is the antithesis of contemporary single-varietal wines. The vineyard is situated in Monti, Chianti at 250 to 330 meters elevation, where breezes help to ventilate the vines and keep them healthy. The limestone clay-rich soils retain water and minerals, nourishing the vines and producing elegant wines. The vines are planted with predominantly south and east-facing aspects to maximize exposure to the sun. This combination of soils and aspects in Monti are the essential factors that impart depth and elegance to the Montebello IGT wine. The vineyard has been organically cultivated since 1995 and certified since 2003. No herbicides or insecticides have been used since 1985 and in 2013 the estate was certified by Delinat.

Badia a Coltibuono is steeped in history, dating back to 1051 when a community of Vallombrosan monks resided in an abbey built on the property, known as ‘Badia’. ‘Cultibuono’ comes from the Latin of the era meaning ‘good harvest’ and the land has always been cultivated respectfully. Since the 2003 vintage, the estate has been certified organic. The 74-hectare estate, which covers the revered Monti subzone, was purchased in 1846 and has been passed down through six generations of the Stucchi Prinetti family. Currently, the estate is run by the present generation, siblings Emanuela, Guido, Paolo, and winemaker Roberto. Crafted in a gravity-fed winery, Roberto Stucchi, the winemaker, has always been an advocate of hands-off winemaking, allowing his wines to express the true aromas and flavor profiles of the region.
