Chianti Classico DOCG Gran Selezione Castello di Bibbione 2016 - Castelli del Grevepesa

The vine grows well and thrives mainly on poor and infertile soils. This is a rule that applies everywhere in the world, and Tuscany and the Chianti Classico area are clearly no exception. In the case of this Castello di Bibbione, for example, the Sangiovese and Merlot vines are rooted in a pebbly soil, difficult to work but perfect for making quality. And you can tell right away by tasting the wine. We are in the municipality of San Casciano in Val di Pesa, not too far from the borders of Florence. We start with a hand harvest, in boxes, making a careful selection of the bunches. Then we proceed with a traditional vinification at controlled temperature, with about 10 days of maceration on the skins followed by 12 months in Slavonian oak barrels and at least 3 months of refinement in the bottle. The result is a wine characterized by a beautiful intense ruby red colour, with aromas of small red berries and gently spicy notes. On the other hand, in the mouth it reveals a nice red wine with character, soft and elegant tannins and a particularly persistent finish.

There is no area more fascinating and full of history and tradition than Chianti. And a piece of this history is linked to the name of Castelli del Grevepesa. We are in San Casciano Val di Pesa, about fifteen kilometres from Florence, right at the gateway to the Chianti Classico region. Here, in 1965, a group of 18 winegrowers created a new reality. United by a single dream, that of keeping intact the secular traditions of Tuscan viticulture, the territory and the peasant customs. In order to do so, the focus is now on the production of high quality wines, in compliance with the strict rules of the Black Rooster Consortium. Since then, a lot of wine has passed through the jars of the Cantina, which over the years has grown to its current capacity of about 120 member companies, with vineyards that extend mainly in the municipalities of Greve in Chianti, San Casciano Val di Pesa (Mercatale Val di Pesa), Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and Barberino Val d'Elsa. The range has clearly expanded and now includes wines from all the major regional appellations. From Chianti and Chianti Classico, to Vernaccia, Nobile di Montepulciano and even includes a Maremma line, with Vermentino, Rosato and Morellino. But there's no shortage of goodies. Even if the dimensions have changed, the passion that is put into the work of every day is unchanged.
