Product Name

The Badia a Passignano abbey is situated in Sambuca Val di Pesa, three kilometers to the south of the Tenuta Tignanello estate. The fundamental importance of this abbey in the history of Chianti Classico can be read in many volumes housed in the State Archives of Florence, which confirm the presence of a Sangiovese vineyard. Further confirmation occurred in 1983 when, in the terrain surrounding the abbey, a millennia-old Vitis vinifera vine was found. The Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is the only Chianti made by Antinori with 100% Sangiovese (aged in Hungarian oak in the abbey’s underground cellars) and is made from a selection of the best grapes from the 53 hectares owned by the family since 1987.

"This is a really beautiful red with cherry, blackberry, violet and chocolate character. Full and layered, yet it remains linear and bright, with an energetic finish. So drinkable now, but better in 2024." 95 pts, James Suckling

""The 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is creamy and sensual from start to finish. In 2018, the Badia shows its typically dark profile but with less heaviness than has been present in some previous vintages. Silky and supple, the 2018 has a ton to offer." 93pts, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
