Mocenni 89
Chianti Classico
Gran Selezione DOCG

Numbers aren’t simply calculations and logic. Numbers have their own fascination, an emotional aspect. Behind a number may lie memories, meanings, moments. Often a number is used to identify something strictly and precisely. A number which becomes a name to enhance the careful and accurate choice of individual bunches of grapes. A wine which is absolute selection, and thus unique and unrepeatable expression of a place, of a terrain, of an identity, of a search for excellence, all of which merge and emerge in the very moment of tasting: intense bouquets, fullness of taste, unmistakable personality, persistence on the palate, in the mind, in the heart.

Vinification and aging: After a careful and precise selection of the grape clusters, the manually harvested grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel vats and maceration lasted for circa 20 days at a controlled temperature of 28/30° C. Shortly after alcoholic fermentation, the wine is transferred into oak barrels of 42hl where malolactic fermentation takes place and where it remains for ageing. Once bottled, the wine remains stored in the estate for refinement prior to its release. This wine expresses the unique character of Mocenni’s and Chianti Classico territory.

Tasting notes: Intense ruby red colour. Incense, red berries, citrus marmalade, a full bouquet of distinct aromas that make this wine unique. The tannin weave is very refined and balanced. The acid note, typical of Sangiovese, confers a particular length and vivacity to the taste that is full, sapid and elegant. This wine in its own unique and unmistakable manner, expresses the
characteristic salinity, minerality of the terrain. Excellent and unique  expression of Sangiovese.
