Bindi Sergardi I Colli 2016
The Chianti Classico appellation is located in a beautiful mountainous area between Siena and Florence. It is the oldest official wine-growing territory in the world: Cosimo III de 'Medici, Granduke of Tuscany, legally defined the limits of this area in 1716. A black rooster, his symbol, is present in all Chianti Classico bottles. The Bindi Sergardi estates are located in the southern part of the appellation, in the Vagliagli area in the province of Siena; Given its history intertwined with Siena and its proximity to that city, the wine produced on the Bindi Sergardi estates represents an authentic expression of Siena's Chianti Classico. Thanks to the characteristics of the climate, the terrain and the altitude, the Sangiovese grape reaches its maximum and only expression here. The land of this farm stands out for the presence of a particular calcareous stone. 100% Sangiovese.
The fermentation of the Sangiovese grape takes place in stainless steel tanks where the maceration lasts 18 days at a controlled temperature of 28/30 ° C. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine is transferred to oak barrels where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and where it remains for further refinement. The bottled wine is then stored in the cellar prior to release.
