      “Cultus Boni” Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2013 (BIO)

      Cultus Boni, a Chianti Classico Riserva of modern design, delights with its generous mineral and graphite berry bouquet and soft, juicy taste. The fine tannins and the well proportioned acidity give it a harmonious hold. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Cultus Boni is a dark and more elaborate interpretation made in the slightly cooler and wilder comune of Gaiole in Chianti. This wine reveals savory tones of tobacco and dark spice with flinty and ashy aromas as well. It presents a sound and solid quality of fruit with dark overtones of meaty cherry and plum." Robert Parker

      "A silky and delicious red with plum, chocolate, meat and cherry undertones. Full body, chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Shows pretty structure for aging." James Suckling

    • Sangioveto di Toscana IGT 2015 (BIO)

      Sangioveto di Toscana IGT 2015 (BIO)

      Brilliant ruby red, the wide spectrum of Sangiovese scents ranges from sweet vanilla notes to hints of raspberry and blackberry. Dense and creamy soft, the relaxed taste offers a harmonious blend of tannin and alcohol with a precisely adjusted acidity level. Sounds sustainable. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny ruby with a slight garnet shimmer. Clear and intense on the nose, presents itself with pronounced cherry notes, some pomegranate. A lot of juicy cherry fruit on the palate, opens up with hearty, gripping tannin, in the rear area rich depth." Falstaff

      "Made only in the best years, the 2015 Sangioveto sees longer skin-maceration times than others. This ultimately results in an ample and generous expression of this classic indigenous variety. The bouquet is not as pinpoint as the Chianti Classico Riserva from the 2016 vintage, yet that broad and rich quality is something we associate with this warm and sunny 2015 vintage. Here, you get sweeping aromas of black cherry, plum and mild spice, making it ideal for a pappardelle with a wild boar sauce." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Badia a Coltibuono
    Tuscany | Chianti
    Badia a Coltibuono

    About 1,000 years ago, the monks of Vallombrosa, who belonged to a Benedictine order, founded Badia a Coltibuono (Abbey of the Good Harvest) as a place of peace and reflection. Located north of the Tuscan wine-growing village of Gaiole, the hamlet, beautifully embedded in the wooded hills of the southern Chianti Classico region, is still almost as it was in the Middle Ages.

    The tradition-conscious family of the current owner Emanuela Stucchi-Prinetti has been at home on Badia a Coltibuono since 1846. The first-class wines of the Bastion of the Tuscan Terroir enjoy the appreciation of wine experts from all over the world and are listed in wine guides with first-class ratings. The cellarer is Emanuela's brother Roberto Stucchi-Prinetti, who cultivates autochthonous grape varieties with great passion and skill. His brothers Paolo and Guido also gracefully continue the work that their ancestors - a Florentine banking family - had begun. Sister Emanuela was the first woman to be elected President of the Consorzio del Marchio Storico del Chianti Classico in the year 2000. Her mother Lorenza de Medici is considered to be Italy's most famous chef.

    The grapes of Badia a Coltibuono grow at an altitude of between 250 and 320 metres on southern, south-eastern and south-western slopes in the immediate vicinity of the abbey. The vineyards are planted with Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, Trebbiano and Malvasia. Roberto and his sister regularly manage to get the best out of the berries. The vines are all grown organically.

    The potential of the Badia a Coltibuono is still far from exhausted, as the new winery in Monti, which takes into account the needs of modern wine production, promises even more outstanding results in the future. SUPERIORE.DE
