(8/11/2021) "Plenty of dark cherry and wet earth with some walnut and dark-mushroom undertones. It's medium-bodied with chewy, polished tannins and a flavorful finish. This can improve with age. Drink or hold."
(9/2021) "The 2019 Chianti Classico RS Cultusboni is deep, fleshy and super-expressive. Tobacco, cedar and dried autumn leaves give the 2019 lovely aromatic presence. Deceptive in its mid-weight feel, the 2019 is beautifully layered and resonant from start to finish. It is another impressive wine in this range from Badia a Coltibuono. The 2019 is positively stellar and one of the best wines I have tasted here in some time. Drinking Window: 2022 - 2034."
