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: 100% Sangiovese
Soil: Alberese and Galestro stones, sand 33%, clay 33%, silt 33%
Vinification and aging: A careful and precise selection of the grape bunches in the vineyard “89”
on the Mocenni estate. The fermentation is carried out in stainless steel vats and maceration lasted
for circa 20 days at a controlled temperature of 28-30°C. Shortly after alcoholic fermentation,
the wine is transferred into oak barrels of 42 HL where malolactic fermentation takes place and
where it is aged for 24 months. Once bottled, the wine remains stored in the estate for refinement
prior to release. This wine expresses the unique character of Mocenni’s and Chianti Classico
Tasting notes: Intense ruby red colour. Incense, red berries, citrus marmalade, a full bouquet
of distinct aromas that make this wine unique. The tannin weave is very refined and balanced.
The acid note, typical of Sangiovese, confers a particular length and vivacity to the taste that is
full, sapid and elegant. This wine in its own unique and unmistakable manner, expresses the
characteristic salinity, minerality of the terrain. Excellent and unique expression of Sangiovese.
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. Store at a constant
temperature of circa 17°C away from light.
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.
