2018 BIBBIANO VIGNA DEL CAPANNINO GRAN SELEZIONE CHIANTI CLASSICO

$49.99 $49.99

Tenuta di Bibbiano is at the historic center of Chianti Classico’s rolling hills, where the Etruscans and Romans established the region’s viticultural identity thousands of years ago. The winery aims to produce the highest quality wines from their distinctive terroir, making their perennially high-scoring Gran Selezione in only the best vintages.

Bibbiano’s Vigna del Capannino Vineyard is planted to Sangiovese Grosso, also known as Brunello, and considered a superior clone because it ripens later, resulting in a more powerfully concentrated traditional Tuscan red wine. The 2018 vintage was fermented for 33 days in cement vats and matured in a mixture of concrete, French oak barrels, and Slavonian oak barrels for 24 months before an additional six months in bottle before release. This extra aging ensures that it will be delightful at release but with the potential for further aging.

2018 BIBBIANO VIGNA DEL CAPANNINO GRAN SELEZIONE CHIANTI CLASSICO

"This is really succulent with sliced plums, blackberries and some dark chocolate. It’s full-bodied and beautifully crafted. Long and flavorful with gorgeous polish. From organically grown grapes. So delicious now, but better in 2023.”

"Bibbiano’s seven-hectare Capannino vineyard is planted with Sangiovese Grosso clones from Montalcino. It enjoys a warm southwest exposure on blue clay with Alberese schist. Dusty, dark and brooding on the nose, the 2018 hints at liquorice, leather and black cherry. The palate is sweeter and friendlier, with macerated berries and cinnamon enveloped in plush, layered tannins. Easygoing yet lively acidity gives a boost...”

"Harmony and grace are the hallmarks of this red, whose cherry, currant, tobacco, iron, sanguine and underbrush flavors are nicely integrated with the firm structure. Ends on a savory note, with an undercurrent of ripe fruit. Best from 2023 through 2032."
