Always great. Coltibuono always captures a classic and refined expression of Chianti.

Beautiful wine here. I don't know much about Italian wines, but this makes me want to learn more. Delicious cherry and red berries on the nose and very tart fruit on the palate.

Great chianti with an artistic styling. Smooth delightful tannins, ripe cherries and slight earthy quality.

Pretty, with soft and gentle floral notes, citrus peel and sour cherry. Fine acidity, but quite simple and light palate. In balance, and pleasant, but didn't stir excitement for me.

2012 badia a coltibuobo estate chianti classico. Extremely pretty. "We've identified 170 grape varieties in the old chianti blends. " if you ever get a chance you hang with Roberto do it! Conversation topics he's enlightening on include biodynamic farming, sangiovese clonal selection history, chianti subzone terrior, the Milan concert seen of the early 70's, the velvet underground, hitchhiking the American west safely and efficiently, Fela Kuti, southern Oregon communes, biodiversity in vineyards, macro economic theory and sangiovese as a soil amplifier. Roberto speaks softly and carries a massive wit. #greatpeopleofwine

In great shape for its age. All leather and cedar and dried flowers.
