Badia A Coltibuono Sangioveto di Toscana 750ml 2009       
Sku: 1778460*

Tasting notes
An intense, deep red, the wine shows delicate aromas of wild blackberries and pleasant notes of spice. A full-bodied and balanced red with acidity that provides lift and verve to the long finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Aug 2013)
One of the most interesting wines in this flight, the 2009 Sangioveto offers a close read of Sangiovese tradition. The wine never colors outside its predetermined lines. It?s bright, berry aromas are appropriately matched to the crispness and weightlessness of the mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

Wine maker notes
‘San Zoveto’ which later became ‘Sangioveto’, was the name commonly used in the past in Chianti for the Sangiovese varietal. The Sangioveto di Coltibuono was created to honour a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages. It is only produced on better vintages. Some of the most noteworthy are: ‘82, ‘85, ‘88, ‘90, ’95, ‘97, 2001 and 2006.

Technical notes
The grapes were harvested from 25-55 years old vines planted in the estate’s oldest vineyard parcels, Montebello and Argenina. The fruit fermented in stainless steel with daily punch downs and was macerated on its skins for 4-5 weeks. It aged for 18-20 months in French oak barriques followed by an additional six months in bottle.
