Progetto Mocenni with the strength of Lots n° 89 e n° 91, has given life to two beautiful solo voices which, with different timbres, characteristics and tones describe the same area, made by nature ideal for highest quality.
Denomination: Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG
Grape varietal: Sangiovese
Vineyards: The parcel 89, located on the Mocenni estate, near Vagliagli, in the township of
Castelnuovo Berardenga, one of the most fortunate positions in Tuscany. The terrain is rich in
Galestro and Alberese stones, ideal for grapevines. South exposure. Altitude 450 meters / 1500
Soil: Alberese and Galestro stones, sand 33%, clay 33%, silt 33%
Vinification and aging: fermentation in stainless steel vats; maceration for circa 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 subsequently aged
for 24 months. Once bottled, the wine remains for a further year stored on the estate for refinement
prior to release.
Tasting notes: incense and citrus marmalade. Intense ruby red colour. The tannin weave is very
refined and balanced. The acid note, typical of Sangiovese, confers a particular length and vivacity
to the taste, bringing forth a marked aftertaste of liquorice and caramel. This wine in its own unique
and unmistakable manner – like the Cabernet Sauvignon in 91 – expresses the characteristic
salinity, minerality of the terrain. Excellent and unique expression of Sangiovese. Improves with
Serving suggestions: traditional accompaniments are red meat (both fresh and salted), game, and
Serving temperature: 18°C. Open and decant at least 1 hour ahead of time.
ap legend: The name derives from the number the State has assigned to the land on which the vineyards producing this wine grow.
egend: Nicolò and Alessandra talked extensively and with excitement about whether Cabernet and Sangiovese would produce wines which were more linked to the territory than to their intrinsic characteristics. The discussion led to planting two different vineyards. The one who maintained predominance of territory was right, but for the sake of family peace we will not mention the name.
