  • This wine is a delightful blend of warm, savoury flavours that are rich and concentrated. It presents diverse fragrant aromas, including red fruits, balsamic notes, floral hints, toasty spices, vanilla, and cloves, which all gradually unfold on the palate. The wine's exceptional structure is upheld by perfectly balanced acidity and supple tannins, resulting in an indefinite finish.

In 1980, when this wine was introduced, a pure 100% Sangiovese was not allowed in DOCG Chianti Classico. While many innovated using international varieties, Badia a Coltibuono created a Super Tuscan from 100% Sangiovese. The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented with wild yeasts at controlled temperatures below 28°C in 35-hectolitre upright oak tanks. Extended maceration on the skins lasted 45 to 130 days, with manual punch-downs to maximise the expression of complexity and balance. The wine was matured for 14 to 16 months in 225 litre French oak barriques, of which no more than 10% were new.

This warm, savoury, and concentrated wine offers an array of fragrant aromas of red fruits, balsamic notes, floral, toasty spice, vanilla, and cloves, all unfolding onto the palate. Great structure is supported by balanced acidity and supple tannins, which lead to a long, refined finish.

The wine is made from 100% Sangiovese vines and old vines. The vineyard is situated at 250 to 330 meters elevation, where breezes help to ventilate the vines and keep them healthy. The soils are clay loam with 15-25% clay, which retains water and minerals and nourishes the vines throughout the warm summer growth period, and limestone rock which is renowned for producing elegant wines. The vines are planted with predominantly south and east-facing orientations to maximize exposure to the sun. 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.
