"The 2011 Cetamura Chianti flows with dark cherries, licorice, earthiness and herbs. This is a dark style of Chianti, but the Sangiovese acidity cuts through the density of the fruit, leading to a pure, crystalline finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016."

The Domaine
Located in Gaiole in Chianti, Badia a Coltibuono’s history dates back to 1051, to the Vallombrosan order of monks, whose fine abbey (‘Badia’ ) still stands proud at the heart of the wine property; ‘Coltibuono’ means ‘good crop’. Current owners, the Stucchi Prinetti family have only been in residence since its purchase in1846 by great great grandfather and Florentine banker Michele Giuntini, cousin of the Selvapiana family of Rufina.

The present generation, siblings Emanuela, Roberto, Paolo & Guido, now run the show, bringing this most traditional of wine estates up to date. At 74ha it’s no garage operation, but it is fortunate in owning a significant slice of Subzone / Sottozona Monti in Chianti, whose excellent terroir is much prized.

Food Pairing
Great with antipasti!
