    Vin Santo del Chianti Classico DOC 2015
  • The Vin Santo del Chianti Classico DOCG of Badia a Coltibuono can safely be described as 'a golden elixir'. It is the result of skilful craftsmanship and a deep respect for nature. It is born between Gaiole in Chianti and Monti in Chianti, two municipalities that rise on clayey limestone hills, an ideal terrain for the cultivation of Trebbiano and Malvasia, the indigenous vines that give life to this precious wine. Harvesting is done by hand to select only the best bunches, which have reached a perfect balance between sugars and acids. After the harvest, the bunches are carefully selected and left to dry on racks in well-ventilated attics. This slow and natural process takes about three months, during which the grapes lose up to 50% of their weight and concentrate sugars and aromas. Maturation then takes place in small, sealed oak barrels, the caratelli. These are kept cool in winter and warm in summer. In this special environment, the wine undergoes slow and controlled maturation. Overall, the Vin Santo of Badia a Coltibuono matures in oak for a minimum period of 8 years. During this long rest, it develops an incredible aromatic complexity, enriched with spicy, toasted and honey notes. Its colour is golden, with brilliant auburn highlights. On the nose, it reveals an intense and complex bouquet with scents of apricot and dried fruit, with hints of chestnut honey, vanilla and sweet spices. In the mouth, it is pleasantly sweet and velvety, with a subtle freshness that balances the sweetness. The notes of dried fruit and honey integrate well with the spicy and roasted notes, resulting in a long, lingering finish. A meditation wine, perfect to end a meal on a high note.

    Today we find ourselves in the heart of Chianti Classico, where Badia a Coltibuono stands, an oasis of history and tradition that has been dedicated to the production of typical wines for over a thousand years. A place where time seems to stand still and where the passion for winemaking is handed down from generation to generation. The history of Badia a Coltibuono began as far back as 1051, when some Vallombrosian monks founded an abbey in this evocative place. Already at that time, they began to cultivate vines, giving rise to a tradition that would remain indissolubly linked to the history of this place. Over the centuries, the abbey became an important religious and economic centre, attracting pilgrims and visitors from all over Europe. In 1846, Badia a Coltibuono passed to the Giuntini family, whose descendants still run the estate today. Under their leadership, the abbey has been transformed into a modern farm, while preserving its historical charm. A fundamental role in this renewal process was played by Piero Stucchi Prinetti, who gave a decisive imprint to the company, steering it towards the production of high quality wines capable of conquering national and international markets.
