Towards the mid-1500s Calidonia Sergardi married Gerolamo Bindi, creating the indissoluble union between two families, both preeminent in the city of Siena at that time: the Bindi and the Sergardi. Since then Bindi Sergardi is the name of a single family, our family. We have named our Chianti Classico Riserva Calidonia because, like that union of 500 years ago, this wine expresses an inseparable bond and a profound harmony: of aromas, of sensations, of emotions that go well beyond the classic tasting notes. Elegance, complexity, structure, excellence: Calidonia is the wine which represents our essence in full.
Denomination: Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG
Grape varietals: 100% Sangiovese
Soil: Alberese and Galestro stones, sand 33%, clay 33%, silt 33%
Vinification and aging: Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats where maceration lasts about 18/20 days at a controlled temperature of 28/30°C. Shortly after alcoholic fermentation,
the wine is transferred into barrels of 42 HL where malolactic fermentation takes place and
where it is aged for approximately 18 months. The estate bottled wine then remains stored in the
cellar for further refinement.
Tasting notes: Intense ruby red color. The nose shows fruity and floral notes together with
spices and incense. Soft, elegant and well structured. Freshness, complexity, graceful and
silky tannins are the result of a careful selection of Sangiovese grapes growing on Alberese and
Galestro soils. This wine is vibrant and has a long and persistent aftertaste. It is an excellent
expression of Mocenni’s terroir and of Chianti Classico Riserva.
Serving suggestions: Traditional accompaniments are red meat (both roasts and salted), game,
and mature cheeses. Mediterranean first courses.
Serving temperature: 18C° – open 1 hour ahead of time. Store at a constant temperature of circa
17C° away from light.
