Formerly known as Badia del Buon Harvest, the estate boasts more than a thousand years of history and over 170 certified successful harvests. The Stucchi Prinetti are well aware of possessing a true jewel of the most classic Chiantigiano and show harvest after harvest that they know how to treat the prestigious terroir of Gaiole with the safety of the most experienced producers. Although the renowned Sangioveto and Montebello reappear at the tastings, whose presentation had been postponed for a year due to the difficult 2014 vintage, our attention is all on the "vintage" Chianti Classico, an always very good red that more than any other in the happy denomination it has an unmistakable style capable of convincing even the less accustomed and distracted taster. The rest of the sampling is in style with the "little giant" of the house, always on the shields. The presentation of the Cultus Boni Reserve is postponed to next year.
