Antinori Badia a Passignano Gran Selezione 2018
SPW Top Value Wine of 2021 - KK
Badia a Passignano 2016 is ruby red in color. On the nose it expresses aromas of red fruit, cherries and morello cherries combined with intense yet delicate floral notes and white chocolate. The palate is rich, lively and balanced with supple, velvety tannins that give the wine elegance, great character and excellent persistence of flavors.

Rose pedals, bacon fat, tart cherries, then sopperessata. Fruit first then hints of Tuscan cured meats. I mean you can't make this up. Off the hook amazing. Rock solid 98 - KK
This is a really beautiful red with cherry, blackberry, violet, and chocolate character. Full and layered, yet it remains linear and bright, with an energetic finish. So drinkable now, but better in 2024.
A lush, round version, featuring milk chocolate hints and cherry, plum, almond and earth flavors. Dense, with dusty tannins. The vibrant acidity keeps all the elements defined on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2037. 1,100 cases imported. — BS
