Calidonia Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

TENUTA MOCENNI

calidonia

Dedicated to Calidonia Sergardi, who married Gerolamo Bindi, creating the indissoluble union between the two families. This wine is a sign of gratitude to our past and to the people that brought us here today.

 

Denomination: Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Grape varietals: 100% Sangiovese

Soil: Alberese and Galestro stones

Vinification and aging: Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats where maceration lasts about 18/20 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 aged for approximately 18 months. The estate bottled wine then remains stored in the
cellar for further refinement.

Tasting notes: Intense ruby red color. The nose shows fruity and floral notes together with
spices and incense. Soft, elegant and well structured. Freshness, complexity, graceful and
silky tannins are the result of a careful selection of Sangiovese grapes growing on Alberese and
Galestro soils. This wine is vibrant and has a long and persistent aftertaste. It is an excellent
expression of Mocenni’s terroir and of Chianti Classico Riserva.

Serving suggestions: Traditional accompaniments are red meat (both roasts and salted), game,
and mature cheeses. Mediterranean first courses.

Serving temperature: 18C° – open 1 hour ahead of time. Store at a constant temperature of circa
17C° away from light.
