For almost 1000 years Badia a Coltibuono, literally meaning "abbey of good culture”, has been producing high quality wines in the district of Gaiole in Chianti. After WWII Piero Stucchi Prinetti transformed Badia a Coltibuono into a modern wine estate. They are dedicated to Sangiovese and Chianti Classico’s unique terroir through organic farming practices, clonal diversity and the restrained use of new oak. There are two separate wine companies - Badia a Coltibuono for wines made from its estate grown grapes and Coltibuono for its Stucchi Selections, made from grapes purchased through long-term relationships with respected growers in Tuscany. In 2000 Badia a Coltibuono converted its estate vineyards to organic farming practices. All of its grapes are hand-picked.

The 2005 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is a soft, delicate wine laced with orange peel, sweet spices, dried flowers and tobacco, all of which flow together nicely in a fresh, accessible style. The long, caressing finish adds to an impression of elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017. ”
