Tasting Notes: Raspberry, Eucalyptus, Licorice, Rose Petal
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 fruit, with notes of eucalyptus and rich garden soil, paint the opening of this Chianti Classico from Bibbiano. Tannins are flexible and smooth, with balanced acidity that bestows a freshness upon the underlying complexity which makes it delightfully versatile and eminently drinkable. One of our favorites.
