Antinori Badia a Passignano Gran Selezione 2012
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
Wine EnthusiastAromas of ripe black-skinned berries, scorched earth, exotic spices, menthol and a whiff of oak are just some of the scents you'll find in this vibrant red. The elegant palate delivers mature Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, orange zest, star anise and a hint of espresso alongside polished, fine-grained tannins.
Wine SpectatorThis is taut and linear, with a solid base of tannins supporting plum, black cherry, licorice and underbrush flavors. Fresh and focused, with a long aftertaste walking the line between sweet and salty.
