Badia a Coltibuono, Chianti Classico 2007 The nose sports cherries and caramel with some raisins – clean and inviting. In the mouth the acidity is vibrant, the tannins are there yet ripe and there is a creaminess as well – very nice.
While the wine is made down in Gaiole the old monastery and visitor center is a must-see up on the hill.
The grapes for this wine are 90% Sangioveto and 10% Canaiolo and are certified organic. Estate bottled in Gaiole 13.5% purchased for $15.99 at Bottle Barn Coltibuono
