Organic farming makes for delicious wines especially when grown in the superb Chianti Classico terroir of Bibbiano,

Castellina in Chianti, overlooking the medieval city of Siena and the fabled towers of San Gimigniano. The estate grapes - Sangiovese, Colorino and Sangiovese Grosso - are hand-harvested and vinified in stainless steel, cement vats and French oak. All are DOCG.
 
Bibbiano Chianti Classico 2013 Sangiovese 95% and Colorino 5%. Surprising and delicious nose, unmistakably Chianti with fruity notes and aromas of red fruit;well-balanced, fresh and versatile on the palate with all the chianti characteristics. Another surprise: fermentation and maturation were in cement vats, followed by 3 months on the bottle. No wood whatsoever!

Bibbiano Chianti Classico Riserva Montornello 2012 . 100% Sangiovese from a single vineyard: Montornello. Elegant, mineral with lots of fruit and spicy notes of black pepper, tobacco and cocoa. Sweet tanins tempered by a lively acidity. Long finish in the mouth.  Maceration on the skins followed by fermentation in French oak for 18 months and 4 months in the bottle.

Bibbiano Gran Selezione Vigna del Capannino 2011 - 100% Sangiovese Grosso. This wine represents all that the winery stands for: elegance, purity, intensity and deep and complex flavors. Barrel fermentation for 24 months and in the bottle for 6 months give this ruby red, full-bodied wine an intense nose of black and red fruit with spices, tobacco, cocoa and some minerality.  Well structured and elegant with silky tannins and plenty of complex fruit and minerality.
The wines pair superbly with food, from antipasti, pizza, risotto, grilled meats and fish to desserts as proven at a winemaker's luncheon at Cecconi's, Miami Beach.
