Badia a Passignano 2018 is ruby red in color. Its complex nose presents intense notes of ripe red fruit, especially sour and black cherries, that merge with sweet hints of blueberries and apricots. Its bouquet is completed by pleasant balsamic sensations of aromatic herbs and toasted aromas of chocolate, coffee, licorice and vanilla. On the palate it's rich, mouth filling, succulent and flavorful yet well sustained by extraordinary freshness and mineral qualities. These characteristics, combined with a sweet aftertaste, give the wine length and a lingering flavor profile. Excellent aging potential.

Cherry, raspberry, plum, mineral and smoky aromas and flavors are deftly framed by spicy oak in this lush, harmonious red. There is plenty of structure, including vibrant acidity, for balance and energy on the lingering aftertaste. Give it a year or two to absorb the oak. Best from 2023 through 2033.

The 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is creamy and sensual from start to finish. In 2018, the Badia shows its typically dark profile but with less heaviness than has been present in some previous vintages. Silky and supple, the 2018 has a ton to offer.

Aromas of French oak, camphor and baked plum form the nose on this big, bold red. On the densely concentrated palate, velvety tannins accompany licorice, vanilla, coffee bean and steeped prune. Drink through 2028.
