Badia a Coltibuono has chosen the excellent 2011 vintage to launch its new wine, Montebello IGT Toscana. Montebello IGT Toscana is the result of a long research and experimental period in the recovery and growth of historical heirloom grape varieties from Chianti, many of which were rarely cultivated. The nine grape types which make up Montebello IGT Toscana are grown in Monti in Chianti, where Badia a Coltibuono has been cultivating its best vines for centuries.  

Vintage notes

The 2011 season was memorable for the hot dry summer that resulted in the earliest harvest on record. The grapes were manually sorted to ensure that only perfect quality clusters would be used.  Harvest period: 19th September / 1st October 

Tasting Notes

The harmonious blend of the 9 varietals gives this wine elegance and depth; the intensity and elegance make it pleasurable now but ageworthy.
