Wine Spectator TOP 100 2021 n.20, 93 pts.
Badia a Coltibuono CHIANTI CLASSICO 2018*.

Though ripe and lush, this is also dense, with pointed tannins giving a physical sensation and lifting the cherry, strawberry and floral flavors. Finds a nice youthful equilibrium in the end, where mouthwatering acidity roams. Best from 2023 through 2038. 24,150 cases made, 5,295 cases imported. —BS

Wine Spectator TOP 100 2013 n.100, 90 pts.
Coltibuono Toscana CANCELLI 2011.*

A rich, charming red, full of cherry, blackberry, spice and earth flavors. Leans toward a modern style, yet displays a touch of wild herbs and firm tannins, lending a sense of place. Sangiovese and Syrah. Drink now through 2020. 13,333 cases made. —BS

For LUNCH you’ll go to Badia a Coltibuono Restaurant, situated in the original but refurbished stables, and, with elegant contemporary flair, the restaurant’s atmosphere is warm and welcoming, while the surrounding garden enhances the overall mood with a touch of romance.
