Description

Tasting notes: A very silky and pretty wine with plum and berry character. Medium body, fine tannins and a meaty finish. Drink now and enjoy. - JS91

This wine represents all the territorial characteristics of the estate and is produced with Sangiovese grapes grown on both slopes of the property, with a small addition of Colorino grapes.

The harvest of the Sangiovese grapes began on September 20, while the Colorino grapes were gathered a few days later.

The fermentation and the maceration on the skins lasted 18 days in steel vats. A further stage of malolactic fermentation and maturation took place in cement vats and was followed by a 3-month refining period in the bottle.

Intense ruby red with distinct purplish notes. Long, very fresh, with particularly pleasant fruity notes of black cherry and currant. Medium structure, very well balanced and harmonious; the freshness and a very pleasant taste stand out thanks to the remarkable acid strength. - Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

The first mention of the Bibbiano estate comes in a parchment dated 1089, located in the Abbey of Passignano. In March of 1865, the property was sold to the forebears of brothers Tommaso and Federico Marrocchesi Marzi. Today, Tommaso and Federico have committed themselves to what they term, Òbringing the past into the future.Ó This sentiment refers not only to their family's history but to their strong belief that the future of Chianti Classic must be firmly rooted in the region's specific terroir, that modernity should not come at the cost of tradition and authenticity.

Surrounded by over three thousand old-growth olive trees are Bibbiano's twenty-five hectares of Sangiovese and Sangiovese Grosso, along with smaller plantings of Colorino and Merlot. These certified organic vineyards are planted on hillside sites at elevations between 270 and 300 meters.
