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.
