Mocenni has a blessed terroir for the
highest excellence in sangiovese cultivation
The estate is located in Vagliagli, 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 the exceptional galestro and alberese soils, represent the archetype of a sangiovese vine’s aspirations. Mocenni’s vineyards create an amphitheatre with an ideal southern exposure. Continous research and experiments on new sangiovese clones and cultivation techniques are the foundations of Bindi Sergardi’s excellence. Mocenni’s origins date back to 1067 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.
