Coltibuono Chianti Cetamura 2012

Coltibuono Chianti Cetamura 750ml 2012   
Sku: 1831317*

Located in the Gaiole district of Chianti, Badia a Coltibuono, which translates to “Abbey of the Good Harvest, was founded in the 11th century by Vallombrosan monks. The Stucchi Prinetti family purchased the 173 acre property from the church in 1846. Over the years, the family has strategically built a significant stock of ancient Sangiovese clones this assures a continuous supply of quality grapes as well as clonal diversity. Wines for the Badia a Coltibuono line are made from estate fruit planted on clay and limestone rock soils in Monti in Chianti while grapes for Coltibuono selections are purchased from highly respected, local growers. The family remains dedicated to producing authentic expressions of Chianti minimal use of oak, careful replanting of high-density vineyards, investment in a new state of the art winery and ICEA organic certification are testaments to their unwavering dedication to preserving the legacy of this historic property.
