The nose offers a wide range of fruity aromas as well as hints of liquorice and ripe blackberries. The complex, elegant palate shows plenty of fruit alongside savoury flavours, finishing long and vibrant.

The 325-hectare Badia a Passignano estate surrounds a fortified abbey near Sambuca Val di Pesa, three kilometres south of Tenuta Tignanello. Fifty hectares of limestone-based land are currently planted with Sangiovese vines, from which only the best bunches were selected.

This wine was made in the monastery cellars in the abbey at the heart of the property. The grapes were destemmed, lightly crushed, and transfered to tank for fermentation, with pumping over and delestage used for extraction. There was a further two weeks' skin contact following alcoholic fermentation, after which the wine was moved to Hungarian and French oak barriques for malolactic fermentation and fourteen months' ageing.
