Badia a Passignano is ruby red in color. Its nose has remarkable intensity: notes of ripe red fruit, cherries in alcohol and sour cherries delicately blend with soft balsamic notes and hints of aromatic herbs. Its bouquet is completed by spicy notes of cloves and chocolate. On the palate its rich entry gives way to well-integrated tannins, sustained by sapidness and excellent freshness.
