TENUTA DI BIBBIANO, CASTELLINA IN CHIANTI (SI)

Categories , ,

Bibbiano is located in the historic Chianti region in the municipality of Castellina, overlooking the Elsa Valley towards the castle of Monteriggioni. Cultivation of grapes in this area originated with the Etruscans, and continued well into the late-Roman era.
Inspired by this incomparable natural and human heritage, the family that has owned Bibbiano since 1865 continues to lovingly cultivate the vineyards and olive groves following a vibrant and modern family business tradition. Today’s owners, Tommaso and Federico Marrocchesi Marzi, are the fifth generation.
Surrounded by vast olive groves consisting of over three thousand trees, the Bibbiano vineyards cover an overall area of about 30 hectares, at an altitude of between 270 and 300 meters, distributed on the hillsides with enviable exposure and an excellent microclimate.
