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.
Technical notes
The grapes were harvested from 25-55 years old vines planted in the estate’s oldest vineyard parcels, Montebello and Argenina. The fruit fermented in stainless steel with daily punch downs and was macerated on its skins for 4-5 weeks. It aged for 18-20 months in French oak barriques followed by an additional six months in bottle.

Producer
For almost 1000 years Badia a Coltibuono, literally meaning "abbey of good culture”, has been producing high quality wines in the district of Gaiole in Chianti. After WWII Piero Stucchi Prinetti transformed Badia a Coltibuono into a modern wine estate. They are dedicated to Sangiovese and Chianti Classico’s unique terroir through organic farming practices, clonal diversity and the restrained use of new oak. There are two separate wine companies - Badia a Coltibuono for wines made from its estate grown grapes and Coltibuono for its Stucchi Selections, made from grapes purchased through long-term relationships with respected growers in Tuscany. In 2000 Badia a Coltibuono converted its estate vineyards to organic farming practices. All of its grapes are hand-picked.
