Vintage notes: A great harvest and a particularly good year for the sangiovese variety both in quality and quantity. The 2009 harvest will be remembered as a record vintage for Badia a Coltibuono. Harvest period: 25th September - 15th October -
Intense, deep ruby red color with subtle glimmers of garnet. The wine shows a splendid, full nose with hints of blackberries and pleasant notes of tobacco and spice. In the mouth, the wine is soft with an elegant, fresh finish and a persistent, generous acidity in the aftertaste. Full of mature tannins and fruitiness.
