Mocenni is the expression of God’s joy when He imagined the ideal territory for Sangiovese cultivation.
The estate is located in the northwest corner of the Comune di Castelnuovo Berardenga, considered the township of production for Sienese Chianti Classico.
This area enjoys full light and warmth given by its southern latitude within the appellation..
The peculiar altitude of 1640 feet/500 meters and exceptional galestro and alberese soils, represent the archetype of sangiovese vine's aspirations. Mocenni's vineyards create an amphiteatre with an ideal southern exposure. Continuous research and experiments on new sangiovese clones and cultivation techniques are the foundations of Bindi Sergardi's excellence. Mocenni's origins date back to 1076 when it was a mill. Its name comes from "macina" (millstone). In 1765, in the real estate registry of Granduke Pietro Leopoldo, it was called "Moceni", until today's Mocenni.
