Description

The Bibbiano Estate is located at the very heart of the historical territory known as Chianti Classico. Vineyards have always existed on these lands and have slowly but surely become an entrepreneurial tradition. Even today all this continues, thanks to the firming methods employed, a grape harvest that is still today hand picked and also thanks to the strong commitment of the present day owners Tommaso and Federico Marrocchesi Marzi. First planted between 1959 and 1970 and then almost totally renewed between 1998 and 2005, the vineyards cover about 25 hectares, at 270-300 metres above sea level, and are located on hilly slopes that enjoy excellent sun exposure. The vineyards consist in red Sangiovese and Sangiovese Grosso implants; there are also a small portion that is cultivated with Merlot, Colorino and Canaiolo vines. Guided by the experience of Giulio Gambelli, who started his profession in the world of Chianti Classico at Bibbiano in 1942, where he was introduced by Pier Tommaso Marzi and also stimulated by the professionality of Stefano Porcinai, the new vineyards are characterized by a cepage (density) of about 5000 vine per hectares, a sixth of which are made up of very short implants. The estate also produces Extra Virgin Olive Oil thanks to the 3000 olive trees, which are surrounded by cereal fields, natural oak, and holm oak and cypress woods. In this wonderful green countryside, the old medieval farms that have just recently been renovated are ready to accommodate guests who want to enjoy the uncontaminated nature of Tuscany.
