Badia a Passignano is located above the town of Sambuca Val di Pesa, just 3 kilometers south of the Tenuta Tignanello estate. The property extends over an area of 223 hectares (551 acres), of which 65 hectares (160 acres) are planted with vines.
An intense ruby red in color, the wine shows aromas of a grand initial impact, highly pleasurable in their expression of a powerful typicality and varietal identity. Smoky notes of red fruit predominate along with sensations of underbrush and of oak, never excessive this latter and always fully respectful of the wine. On the palate, in addition to a body of absolute balance, the 2013 Badia a Passignano offers much personality with its firm tannins, still in evidence, characteristics of its youth but also of its territory. Excellent the length and persistence and the flavor finesse.
