It is only its first edition but aims to become an attractive event also for non-professionals, it is about Sangiovese 2.0, an in - depth table on the interterritorial expressions of the Sangiovese in Chianti Classico and in Brunello di Montalcino.

A vine, the Sangiovese, which combines two territories very close to each other but also very different, 18 wines in tasting all produced with pure Sangiovese grapes.

"I am happy with this original initiative" - ​​he says Davide Bonucci, EnoClub Siena coordinator - "It is 9 years that we have this traveling project, a real study seminar".

The event took place at the Tenuta Moceni owned by the family Bindi Sergardi, committed by 23 generations to keep alive the traditions of the territory, its vineyards are placed at 500 mt, and form an amphitheater with southern exposure.

The participating companies are for the Chianti Classico territory Capannelle Casa al Vento Bindi Sergardi for the territory of Montalcino Tricerchi, Terre Nere, Argiano.

Six producers who firmly believe in Sangiovese, small companies that can attract interest and attention. In the tasting room the study day begins with a brief presentation of the six producers.

"We are located in the heart of the hills of Gaiole in Chianti" - he recalls Manuele Verdelli, Cannelle farm - "we produce about 80.00 bottles for five types of wines. Our flagship is our cellar, Caveau made of steel and equipped with temperature and humidity control systems. "

"Our greatest commitment is linked to hospitality," he says Francesco Gioffreda, Borgo Casa al Vento farm - "a targeted welcome, linked to the knowledge and culture of wine. Our estate covers about 20 hectares, of which 8 is planted for a total production of 35.000 bottles. "

"We like Bindi Sergardi we thank you that bless the union of Sangiovese "- he says Alessandra Casini Bindi Sergardi - "the main road for us is sustainability, unity and comparison is strength and differences are an added value. TO Mocenni meet the 3 geological compositions of Chianti, it is the soil to make climate, in our particle 89 born the river Bozzone, which melts the salts that are absorbed by the Sangiovese vines, giving the wine an unmistakable identity. "

"The three years we present today" - he explains Tommaso Squarcia, a Tricerchi farm - "tell a part of the history of our company, a small family that has reached its 17th generation. We cultivate only Sangiovese for 13 hectares and divided into distinct 7 plots, the altitudes vary between 300 and 180 mt, with exposure mainly to the west and the soils are characterized by the presence of sand and limestone clays. "

"Our peculiarity is the particular attention in the vineyard" - he says Federico Vallone, Terre Nere agricultural company - "even in the most difficult years like the 2014 we can give quality, our soil is particularly draining, and the microclimate very ventilated, keeps the grapes always in excellent condition. The river flows downstream from the vineyards Orcia, which plays an important thermoregulatory action, our annual production is about 50.000 bottles. "

"I think this is a wonderful occasion where we have 18 canvases and a single subject, the Sangiovese" - explains Riccardo Bogi, Argiano farm - "For some years we have started a project of micro zonation, we vinify the Brunello only of the grapes coming from the area of ​​calcareous marl. We are one of the founding companies of the Brunello Consortium, and among the first to experiment with non-native vines in the territory. "

Tasting notes:

Il 2014 it was a very difficult and risky harvest, and perhaps as suggested Marzio Del Toso, from the LindoVino blog, "Many producers should have had more courage, and take a step back". As always in difficult years, the hand of the producer comes to the rescue, which if he knows his job, can give the right interpretation and bring out a wine that is respected: the six wines in tasting are certainly among these. The general lack of structure leaves room for fineness and elegance, characteristics that for the most international palates are always very appreciated.

Il 2013 it is still very fresh, with great possibilities of aging, the three labels of the Chianti are characterized by balance and depth, the tannins are elegant, but still scratch. The labels of Montalcino are characterized by a greater hardness of tannins, are wines made to last with important margins of evolution.

Il 2012 he presented us ready wines, in Chianti the vintage gives you a beautiful immediacy of fruit, perhaps less long-lived but immediately full and enjoyable. THE Brunello di Montalcino stand out for their roundness and low acidity, they are ready, we do not expect these wines to improve over time.
