Antinori Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2019


In Stock

“The 2019 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is packed with inky dark fruit, chocolate, spice, Ieather and incense. Opulent and flamboyant to the core, the 2019 speaks in a loud, brash voice. There’s a ton of richness, but less in the way of finesse. Affer many years of tasting this wine, I have to conclude the Badia is never going to be a particularly refined Chianti Classico. It’s just not in its DNA. Drinking window: 2024-2034. 92 points

I tasted a wide range of wines with Renzo Cotarella this year, including a number of hugely promising 2021s. Tignanello and Solaia are notable, but once again, what increasingly impresses me most is the quality Antinori routinely achieves with their entry-level offerings.”
