Badia a Passignano Gran Selezione is produced exclusively from the selection of the best Sangiovese grapes from the homonymous estate located in the heart of the Chianti Classico. The area has been renowned for its wine production since the year one thousand. The vineyards extend over a soil rich in calcareous rock with an average amount of clay at a height of about 300 meters above sea level. The refinement takes place in the historic cellars of the Badia di Passignano dating back to the 10th century.

Badia a Passignano Description

Badia a Passignano is located above Sambuca Val di Pesa, 3 km south of Tenuta Tignanello; its 223 hectares, of which 65 are vineyards, extend over calcareous soil, reaching a height of 250 to 300 meters in one of the most beautiful and suitable areas of the Chianti Classico. Its fundamental importance in the history of Chianti is reported in hundreds of volumes, now kept in the State Archives of Florence, which give news of the Sangiovese vineyards and the crops of the area. As confirmation of this, in 1983, a millenary vitis vinifera plant was found in the land surrounding Badia a Passignano.
