About the Wine
Treggiaia is a fun blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Cab Sauvignon. This wine aims to represent the perfect mix between the estate's two flagship grapes, Sangiovese and Cabernet. The result is a complex, deep, and seductive wine.
With more than 1300 years of history, Villa Bibbiani is a little gem in the heart of Tuscany. Gambero Rosso said that Bibbiani is “much more than a winery, much more than an estate.” We agree.
The story behind Villa Bibbiani is just fascinating. To track its origins, we have to go back to Middle Ages, when the Villa belonged to the Benedictine monastery. However, “modern” times at Bibbiani started in 1700, when the property was acquired by the Frescobaldi family. For those who don’t know, Frescobaldi is Italian royalty. This family was responsible for the first vineyards and the botanical garden (still to this day) planted by Cosimo Ridolfi, the father of modern Italian agriculture.
Bibbiani is located in a magical place, so surreal that it has even been embodied in Leonardo Da Vinci’s art. Located in the hills of Montalbano between Capraia and Limite, this colossal property comprises a total of 1,000 acres, this includes the famous Villa (a 5-star accommodation), the botanical garden, the olives, the vineyards, and the ancient cellar.
The beautiful vineyards extend from the slopes of Montalbano hill to the church of San Jacopo in Pulignano. They are planted with Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon, and other native grapes, with vines between 20 and 50 years old.
Leopoldo Morara is Villa Bibbiani’s winemaker. He has forged his expertise at very recognized estates in countries like France, Chile, and New Zealand. This passionate winemaker has been leading Bibbiani’s team since 2018. He says that “the key to making a good wine is maximum respect for the terroir, and we work solely along these lines.”
Bibbiani is the perfect combination of tradition with modernity. The state-of-the-art vinification area, and the ancient cellar, combined with Tuscan winemaking tradition, deliver Bibbiani’s exceptional, unexpected, and unique wines. Acquired by an American owner in 2016, the property has undergone extensive upgrades.
