Antinori Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2016

An intense ruby red in colour, the wine shows aromas of a grand initial impact, highly pleasurable in their expression of a powerful typicality and varietal identity. Smoky notes of red fruit predominate along with sensations of underbrush and of oak, never excessive this latter and always fully respectful of the wine. On the palate, in addition to a body of absolute balance, the Badia a Passignano offers much personality with its firm tannins, still in evidence, characteristics of its youth but also of its territory. Excellent the length and persistence and the flavour finesse.
