The flagship wine from legendary Coltibuono, an abbey that dates back to the 11th C. It has elegant but supple tannins, layers of violet, lris, black pepper and cherry. An excellent choice for roasts and aged cheeses.

Though ripe and lush, this is also dense, with pointed tannins giving a physical sensation and lifting the cherry, strawberry and floral flavors. Finds a nice youthful equilibrium in the end, where mouthwatering acidity roams. Best from 2023 through 2038. 24,150 cases made, 5,295 cases imported.

The 2018 Chianti Classico is a very pretty, enticing wine. Crushed flowers, sweet red cherry, pipe tobacco, cedar and mint all grace this exquisite, ethereal Chianti Classico from Coltibuono. All the elements simply fall into place effortlessly. Silky tannins round things out in style. This is such a beguiling Chianti Classico.
