Bindi Sergardi Al Canapo Chianti Colli Senesi 2016
OH MY. You know, we’ve been selling wine on the Internet for 19 years. 19!! As professional Web wine-slingers, and the thousands and thousands of wines we have sold brands we discovered, BINDI is one of the greats. We thank the stars every time a container lands for our good fortune. Oh, and yours!!!! Bindi Segardi Chianti Colli Sensei ‘16 --- 91 POINTS and a jaw-dropping $14. Astounding. This is a FANTASTIC vintage for Tuscan deliciousness!
If you remember from previous offers, Bindi Segardi is literally royalty in this part of Tuscany, dating back to the mid-1300s (!), when the family led an army that defeated the Aretines and were installed as governors of the Republic. As they have for 600+ years, they continue to farm grapes, olives, and animals on their land. There is some crazy-cool history and pedigree here!
This is not a complicated, blowsy, oaky or pointy wine in any way. No, it is PURE as the wine blowing across the Tuscan hills --- dried and fresh cherries, zippy clean/fresh blue berries, pomegranate...it will satisfy your soul immediately, we promise...especially in this vintage!! WOW! 91 points, $14!! How lucky are we? You?! While it lasts….
Technical DetailsCountry: Italy
Appellation: Chianti Colli Senesi
Varietal: 100% Sangiovese
Aging/Cooperage: After the process of destemming the grapes are macerated for approximately 10 days in stainless steel tanks. During this phase, the wine completes alcoholic fermentation at a temperature of 25° C to fully bring out varietal character and conserve fruity and flora notes. After racking the wine completes malolactic fermentation and it is aged for approximately six months at the I Colli estate prior to bottling.
About The Producer
Over the centuries, family members have always continued to invest and dedicate their energies in the cultivation of vines and arable land. Nicolò, 22nd generation of the family and grandson of Elisabetta Bindi Sergardi, has believed strongly in scientific research of new vine clones and in the identification of vacated soils to enlarge and improve the historic patrimony of the family. Today, Nicolò's daughter, Alessandra, runs the estates of the family. Thanks to her tenacity and courage choices the winery experiences new cellar concepts at the service of quality with a production that is entwined with the authenticity and integrity of its territory.
