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.
The decision of not using herbicides or insecticides was the start in 1985 of the conversion to organic practices. We then selected the 600 vines of our own special massal selection, and in 1988 we began the renewal of the vineyards. Over the years the organic approach has become more successfully integrated in our farm and in 1994 the olive groves were certified, followed in 2000 by the vineyards. Managing cover-crop, composting and increasing biodiversity are the most essential components of a truly sustainable organic approach. This increases the health of the soil, which in turn promotes better quality, higher yields as well as protecting the health of the workers and the environment. A live and healthy soil also makes the wines more vibrant and help express their unique character. Today the Delinat guidelines extend the organic practices to all aspects of production and the creation of the Biodistretto del Chianti launches a challenge to expand to all the Chianti Classico territory the benefit of sustainable organic farming.
Respect for biodiversity, for the health of the workers and for the environment are the cornerstones from which Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico is born. In the heart of the Sienese part of Chianti Classico, from our vineyards in Monti (Gaiole) and Vitignano (Castelnuovo Berardenga) we harvest Sangiovese grapes from our massale selection with small quantities of complementary grapes. The vinification takes place with spontaneous yeasts in the modern cellar of Monti using delicate techniques to maximize the expression of the complexity and balance of these grapes. A wine with a strong but gentle structure that is the expression of Sangiovese and its pleasantness. For its long history and its consistency over time it is considered one of the reference points of the denomination.
