Badia A Coltibuono Chianti Classico Riserva 2008

Badia A Coltibuono Chianti Classico Riserva 750ML 2008      
Sku: 50261

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Jun 2012)
The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva is gorgeous, especially for a vintage that was not easy. Black cherries, mint, licorice and tobacco are supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins and lively acidity, both of which should allow the wine to age gracefully for a number of years. The 2008 could still use another year or two to soften, but it is gorgeous, even today. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.

Wine maker notes
The Badia a Coltibuono Riserva, our most classic wine, is made exclusively from autoctonous grapes. It is loved by wine aficionados worldwide and is considered to be a true emblem of the Chianti territory. As a testimony to its long history and traditions, the estate is the proud possessor of a unique patrimony of old Riserva wines which date back as far as 1937. Unfortunately wines preceding this vintage were lost during the Second World War. The Riserva is produced only on better vintages. Some of the most noteworthy are: ‘59, ‘64, ‘66, ‘71, ‘75, ‘83, 85, ‘88, ‘90, ‘93, ‘95, 97, ’99, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008.
