Founded in 1865, Bibbiano is located in the historic Chianti region, in the municipality of Castellina in Chianti, overlooking the Elsa Valley towards the castle of Monteriggioni. Today’s owners, Tommaso and Federico Marrocchesi Marzi, are the fifth generation. Surrounded by vast olive groves consisting of over three thousand trees, Bibbiano’s vineyards cover an area of about 25 hectares, at an altitude ranging from 270 to 300 meters, with enviable exposure and excellent microclimate. The vineyards consist of plants of Sangiovese and Sangiovese Grosso grapes as well as a smaller quantity of Colorino.
Bright, with cherry, strawberry and currant aromas and flavors, this graceful red is underlined by a firm, linear structure. The supple texture lends harmony, and this glides to a long finish marked by red fruit, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2024.
Here is a classic and elegant wine from the heart of Tuscany. The Bibbiano 2019 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigne di Montornello (a 15,000-bottle production) never veers far from the Sangiovese playlist. It shows bright cherry and tart wild fruit with forest floor, blue violets and hints of rust or soft gardening soil. Fermentation is longer in the case of this top-end wine, lasting 33 days on the skins in cement vats, and aging takes place in a combination of cement and French oak for 24 months. The cement is key to underlining elegance and freshness.
