Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico "RS" 2004
The "Abbey of the Good Harvest" is one of Tuscany's oldest cellars dating back to the 11th century. RS stands for Roberto Stucchio, the winemaker-oenologist-owner. 100% Sangiovese aged in small oak barrels. Hallmark Sangiovese characterists define this wine: ripe red cherry-berry fruit, tobacco, leather, bright acidity, and a little spice. Traditional in style but very accessible and well-balanced.
