Tasting Notes

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.

Score: 94

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.

Score: 93

Antonio Galloni, Maturity: 2023-2033 01 September 2021

This is a really beautiful red with cherry, blackberry, violet and chocolate character. Full and layered, yet it remains linear and bright, with an energetic finish. So drinkable now, but better in 2024.
