Antinori Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia A Passignano
This ripe version is starting to reveal mature aromas and flavors of woodsy mushroom, with notes of black cherry, leather and tobacco. Balanced and juicy, leaving a mouthwatering impression. The estate’s 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Badia a Passignano bursts from the glass with expressive dark cherries, plums, flowers and cloves. The Badia a Passignano is a bit brighter and more focused than the Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva, largely because it is 100% Sangiovese. Hints of tobacco, leather and cedar add further nuances on the soft, resonant finish. Over the last few years, the Badia a Passignano has been one of the most improved wines in the Antinori range. Newly promoted to Grand Selezione status, the 2009 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano shows evolved tones of charred earth, dried cherry, chewing tobacco, tar, black olive and toasted hazelnut. Dusty spice and crushed mineral appear as the wine warms in the glass. The wine stills needs time to fully blossom and soften the remaining tannic sharpness.
