Produced in small quantities, this is the classic tuscan hospitality wine. Badia a Coltibuono’s Vin Santo always amazes for the perfect combination of intensity, complexity and freshness.

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 of the Chianti Classico territory the benefit of sustainable organic farming.
