Critics

Wine Advocate Notes
94 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is a pure expression of Sangiovese. Fruit is sourced from the San Donato area of the appellation that is not an official subzone yet but is increasingly emerging as such. This wine is distinguished by a beautiful level of openness and softness (on the Sangiovese spectrum, which means you also get a bright dose of acidity). That softness or lushness comes in part due to the warm vintage but also thanks to the winemaking approach that relies on larger barrels (from 300 to 500 liters) and Hungarian oak that tends to be more porous and thickly textured for increased passage of oxygen. The wine offers beautiful balance between its dark fruit and savory spice comments. This Chianti Classico Gran Selezione was not produced in 2014."
Antonio Galloni
94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is remarkable wine in many ways. For starters, the 2013 is the first vintage of the Badia a Passignano done entirely in cask and in a more refined style than was the norm in the past, when this wine was rather bombastic. Outrageously beautiful, vivid and voluptuous, the wine is dark and enveloping, with tons of character and remarkable finesse. To be sure, this site will always produce ample, broad wines, but the 2013 is also incredibly elegant." 1/18.
Wine Spectator Notes
95 Points - HOT WINE - Wine Spectator: "...this red nonetheless has the hallmarks of a terrific Chianti Classico. intense and saturated with black cherry, black currant, olive, cedar and tobacco flavors that stand up to the beefy tannins. The vibrant acidity keeps this fluid and long. Best from 2020 through 2035. From Italy." 6/18
Decanter Notes
93 Points - Decanter: "Owned by Antinori since 1987, the vineyards here surround an abbey dating back to at least the 9th century. The property includes 56ha of Sangiovese planted from selected clones of the nearby Tignanello estate. The wine is aged primarily in small Hungarian oak barrels, producing 70,000 bottles. An enthralling nose of fennel, fresh earth, smoke and wild berries leads into a palate of equal intrigue. There's a vibrant lift, and refined tannins cling effortlessly to the layers of fruit." 2/18
