Alessandra Bindi

 

This is the story of the Bindi Sergardi family. Since 1349 they have been one of Siena's most influential and important families. They also began one of the finest Chianti estates. Twenty-three generations later, the wines from this excellent family estate are available here. The 2017 Mocenni Chianti Classico Gran Selezione comes from the best part of a single vineyard called Particella 89. Tenuta Mocenni is in the village of Vagliagli. The vineyards here are some of my favorite in the world. They are beautiful high-elevation vines with rocky albarese and galestro soils.

Alessandra Casini Bindi Sergardi runs the estate today. She has a tremendous love and understanding of the Chianti Classico region. She is also highly motivated by family tradition. This is the estate's finest wine and is very limited in production.

2017 Tenuta Mocenni Chianti Classico Gran Selezione: Ruby red. Cherries and red berries with notes of flowers, incense, and orange peel. Refined balanced tannins and bright acidity give length and vivacity. Background of minerality and salinity. Unique expression of 100% Sangiovese. Outstanding  89/bottle

 

Special six pack: 6 bottles of the above for a special price of $456 (76/bottle)
