2016 BADIA DI MORRONA I SODI DEL PARETAIO CHIANTI RISERVA
Badia di Morrona is a historic Estate in Tuscany dedicated to farming their land and balancing technology with traditional techniques. Their land near the village of Morrona was once undersea and is now rich in marine nutrients. The vines are grown in well-drained clay, minerally and sandy soils that make their wines recognizable with a clear sense of place. The classically styled 2016 Chianti Riserva is harmoniously balanced, and at $26, it’s an incredible value.
This 2016 enters from one of Tuscany’s most outstanding vintages in the last two decades, and one the Wine Spectator rates 97 points and describes as producing, “Vibrant, elegant wines; grapes harvested under ideal conditions.”
The winemaking team fermented the Riserva for ten months in concrete and stainless steel tanks, preserving the fruit’s natural flavors. The blend is predominantly Sangiovese, balanced with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, and aged 18 months in oak.
