CHIANTI CLASSICO ZONE
Chianti is the original name of the region where the wine Chianti Classico is produced, a beautiful area between Siena and Florence. The predominant grape is Sangiovese, which reaches its maximum and unique expression in this area. The wine produced in Chianti became famous worldwide in the 1500s thanks to its excellent quality. Merchants from all over started to import it to their countries. Chianti was a successful brand and producers with vineyards outside the Chianti region started to call their own wine Chianti. A selected group of winemakers decided to create an ante litteram DOC by defining the boundaries of the production zone: they called the wine CHIANTI CLASSICO: it could originate only from the true Chianti region. Bindi Sergardi ancestors were in that group.
Chianti wine is made primarily with Sangiovese grapes grown in delimited production areas in the provinces of Siena, Florence, Pistoia, Pisa and Prato. The gentle, amply terraced hills and valleys of the area offer fine wine coming from vineyards which are traditional symbols of the Tuscan landscape. The beauty, history, sensations, and unique flavors of Tuscany, the most well-known and loved region of Italy in the world, are all reflected in this fresh and fruity wine.
CHIANTI COLLI SENESI ZONE
Rich in history and culture, the Province of Siena generously offers vistas, odors and flavors that enthrall the visitors to the heart of rural Tuscany. Vineyards have lined the slopes since antiquity. There are three main clusters of Chianti Colli Senesi wine production in the Province of Siena: north (Monteriggioni, Castelnuovo Berardenga, Siena itself), southwest (Montalcino)
and southeast (Montepulciano, Pienza, Chiusi). Chianti Colli Senesi wine has an appealing personality and grace which have made it popular for five centuries. This red wine is made with minimum 75% Sangiovese grapes, the traditional Tuscan varietal.
