Badia a Passignano 2019 is ruby red in color. Intense on the nose with notes of ripe red fruit, liqueur cherries, and sour cherries together with citrusy hints of red oranges and delicate floral sensations of lavender. Its complex bouquet is completed by sweet notes of vanilla and pleasant spicy aromas of cloves and leather. On the palate the mouth filling entry is sustained by silky, vibrant tannins than accompany a lengthy finish, persistent and sapid, with a pleasant aftertaste of bitter cocoa and citrus.

A dense, rich red highlighted by black cherry, blackberry and blueberry flavors, with flashes of vanilla and toasty oak underscored by mineral and wild herbs. Features fine balance and texture. A tannic structure emerges on the earth-tinged finish, suggesting this will need another 2-3 years before it hits its stride. One for the cellar. Best from 2025 through 2043.

Sourced from a single vineyard surrounding the abbey of Badia a Passignano, the 2019 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Baddia A Passignano has an attractive, seamless perfume of wet stone, candied red cherry, rosemary, and pressed flowers. It floods the palate with pure red fruits, super-fine tannins, warming baking spices, and fresh salinity. This remarkable and gorgeous wine is deceptively easy-drinking now and will continue to improve over the coming 10-15 years.

The 2019 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is packed with inky dark fruit, chocolate, spice, leather 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. After 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.
