While rather intense in aroma and mouthfeel, this robust, yet classic red is extremely palatable due to its lively acidity. Boasting a beautiful ruby hue and big flavor, this wine will make lasting impressions when served with traditional Italian fare such as tender lamb or pasta Bolognese.
Bibbiano is located in the historic Chianti region, in the municipality of Castellina in Chianti, overlooking the Elsa Valley towards the castle of Monteriggioni. Cultivation of grapes in this area originated with the Etruscans, continuing well into the late-Latin era.
Inspired by this incomparable natural and human heritage, the family, owner of Bibbiano since 1865, continues to lovingly cultivate the vineyards and olive groves following a vibrant and modern family business tradition. In fact, today’s owners, Tommaso and Federico Marrocchesi Marzi, are the fifth generation.
Surrounded by vast olive groves consisting of over three thousand trees, Bibbiano vineyards cover an overall area of about 25 hectares, at an altitude between 270 and 300 meters, distributed on the hillsides, with enviable exposure and excellent microclimate.
The vineyards consist of plants of red Sangiovese and Sangiovese Grosso grapes as well as a smaller quantity of Merlot and Colorino. The two slopes of Bibbiano, where the vineyards lay, offer different organoleptic characteristics.
The philosophy is to produce top-quality wines and comes from determination to enhance the “genius loci” (local talent) of Bibbiano; that is, the very soul of this geographical region with its special character and its human heritage, that produces well-balanced, elegant wines of great personality, at times quite strong and with very pronounced tones.
