2015 Badia a Coltibuono Cultus Boni Chianti Classico DOCG

Tuscany | Sangiovese

“Badia a Coltibuono’s 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Cultus Boni is a beautiful wine with a wild side. The bouquet shows whiffs of crushed white pepper and balsam herb that frame the dark fruit and cherry at the core of this wine. This is a thinly textured red wine with the acidity and the cutting directness to pair with fatty meat dishes or pasta with extra cheese. The blend is 80% Sangiovese with Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Colorino, Mammolo, Foglia Tonda, Malvasia Nera, Sanforte and Pugnitello."

- 91 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 

"Underbrush, oak, wild berry and scorched earth aromas form the nose. Made with 80% Sangiovese and other local native grapes, the palate demonstrates the heat of the vintage, evoking dried cherry, smoke, licorice and tobacco alongside rather dusty tannins."
