Bellavista, covering an area of 22.817 hectares (56.358 acres), was planted between 1967 and 1975. The altitude ranges from the 530 (1,739 ft.) in the section known as Bellaria and the 456 meters (1,496 ft.) of the Campinuovi sector. The soil consists primarily of clay with a substantial content of crumbled rock. The predominant training system is the espalier (14.5 hectares), with pruning in the simple Guyot technique, while the method known as the open lyre is applied in 8.31 hectares. The varieties cultivated in the 25 lots, numbering from 1 to 25, include Chardonnay and Merlot in addition to the traditional Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Malvasia and Trebbiano. This wine is not produced every year, but only in exceptional vintages and in limited quantities.

Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista is a knock out. Rose petals, flowers, all sorts of red berries and mint are some of the nuances that emerge from the 2007. Striking inner perfume, ripe tannins and phenomenal overall balance are the calling cards. Today the 2007 comes across as a modern-day version of the 1990 or, to use a more contemporary comparison, the 2004, but with more weight and also greater sweetness in the tannin. Either way, it is flat-out stunning and a must-have. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2037.

Wine SpectatorA linear style, this elegant wine boasts cherry, strawberry, tobacco and spice aromas and flavors. Gains richness in the mouth, supported by stern tannins, yet this is balanced and very long. Be patient. Best from 2014 through 2025. 70 cases imported.
