The fermentation work is carried out with a high-tech punch down tool that reproduces the ancient manual processing. The wine cellar, organized on several levels, allows us to take advantage of gravity also for the casking and bottling. Through this special care and attention to detail, we want to convey this territory's elegance in every bottle.
Of the almost 400 hectares that Villa Bibbiani owns, about 30 are currently planted with vines and in production. Our vineyards, aged between fifty and twenty years, extend from the plain of the Arno to more than 250 m above sea level. Depending on the position and altitude, the composition of the soil changes and therefore the nuances that our wines provide us. Sangiovese is undoubtedly the prince of varieties in Italy and especially in Tuscany. Clearly it is also for us here at Villa Bibbiani, an integral part of our history and tradition. However, this variety is joined by Cabernet Sauvignon, our other soul of the company. Cabernet is considered an autochthonous grape, which in our territory finds the perfect terroir to express itself at its best, transmitting typicity and authenticity. In fact, it is historically present in our area, imported by the Medici more than 300 years ago under the name of Uva Francesca, from France.
On the southern slopes of the Montalbano hill, near Florence, is Villa Bibbiani: a charming Renaissance residence surrounded by a lush botanical park and wonderful vineyards. A history of beauty and avant-garde of more than 1300 years
