The Marchesi Antinori 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano reveals the soft and generous side of this vintage with ripe aromas of blackberry, plum, spice, sweet tobacco and campfire ash. The wine is giving and rich to all the senses and it ends with softly integrated tannins and a fleshy, fruit-forward style. Serve it with a platter of real Tuscan rosemary schiacciata with slices of culatello. Monica Larner, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is dark and sumptuous, with its soft contours very much in evidence. In 2017, the Badia a Passignano is not quite as potent as it can be, but in exchange it will drink well pretty much right out of the gate. Time in the glass brings out red tonalities of fruit and sweet floral notes, along with hints of cedar, spice and red cherry that linger. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
