Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2015

Antinori's Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is produced exclusively from the finest Sangiovese grapes harvested from its namesake vineyard located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region. The region has been respected and appreciated for its outstanding wine production since the year 1000. The vineyards grow at an altitude of approximately 300 meters (984 feet) above sea level on soils rich in limestone with a fair amount of clay. The wine is aged in the historic cellars under the Badia (abbey) of Passignano that dates back to the 10th century.

The 2015 Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is wonderful ruby red in colour. The nose expresses notes of ripe red fruit and intense hints of berry fruit and cherries under spirits along with the spicy and balsamic sensations. The wine is ample and enveloping on the palate with supple and velvety tannins; the freshness is excellent as well, as are the finesse and the length on the finish and aftertaste.
