Tasting Notes: Cherry, Cranberry, Eucalyptus, Licorice
Founded in 1865, Bibbiano is located in the historic Chianti region. Today’s owners, Tommaso and Federico Marrocchesi Marzi, are the fifth generation. Tenuta di Bibbiano was the longest standing consultancy of famed winemaker Giulio Gambelli. Their decades-long association with Gambelli, under whom Bibbiano’s current winemaker trained, still lives on in their traditional approach to winemaking and their commitment to 100%-pure Sangiovese wines.
Vibrant cherry, raspberry and cranberry fruit, with notes of eucalyptus and earth, give a framework to this Chianti Classico from Bibbiano. The wine's tannins are flexible and smooth.This benchmark example is backed by good acidity and a firm finish. Delightfully versatile and eminently drinkable. One of our favorites.
