Winemaker Notes

Badia a Passignano is produced exclusively from the highest quality grapes grown on the estate of the same name, situated in the Chianti Classico area.

It has been renowned for its wine production for more than 1,000 years.

Critical Acclaim

RP 89
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Riserva is a pretty, juicy red laced with cherries, dried flowers, tobacco and underbrush. The tannins dry out a touch on the finish, which is the only thing that keeps the score from going higher. Still, this forward, fruit-driven Chianti should drink nicely over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016.

International Wine Cellar

Bright ruby-red. Pure, enticing aromas of sweet ripe raspberry, sour red cherry, licorice and sweet spices. Juicy and suave, with good intensity to the jammy red fruit, underbrush and nutty oak flavors. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and good length.

Wine Spectator

Blackberry aromas, with hints of rose and cedar, lead to a medium body, with a lovely density of fruit and some milk chocolate notes. This has a silky texture and a medium finish. Best from 2010 through 2015.
