Tasting Notes: Fattoria Bibbiani has been making wine since the 1300’s, and has one of the most storied histories in Toscana. The grounds are also home to a variety of plants and trees that are endangered in Central Italia. One of the rarest clones of the noble Sangiovese grape, Pulignano, is grown here, on only one hill in the world, and compares favorably with some of Italia’s best Brunellos. Aged in French oak barriques for three years, Bibbiani’s Pulignano is an exuberant, yet graceful ode to Sangiovese.
