2016 BIBBIANO VIGNA DEL CAPANNINO GRAN SELEZIONE CHIANTI CLASSICO

Bibbiano cemented its spot on my top 5 wines-of-the-year list in 2020 with its explosive richness, deep-seated power, and captivating elegance. A month later, it earned a monstrous 95 point score in the Wine Spectator, which referenced the wine’s escalating power. Each time I taste it, the wine not only stands up to Italian, French and American producers, but it dominates just about everything in its path. If you want to taste an exceptionally high-quality Chianti at a great price, this is it.

Making a dramatic entrance from one of Tuscany’s best vintages in nearly two decades, this stunning wine was created from 100% Sangiovese Grosso and aged for 30 months before bottling. On the palate, the wine is intensely captivating and with a satin texture and long resonant finish.

Production requirements for Gran Selezione wines insist on sourcing the grapes from 100% Estate grown fruit or selecting the Estate’s best parcels. It also has higher extract restrictions and extended oak aging requirements. Gran Selezione, which means Great Selection, is the pinnacle of quality for Chianti Classico.

2016 BIBBIANO CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA

Bibbiano is a Rock-Solid producer of Chianti Classico whose wines have stunning poise, immense depth, and delineation. Their wines are perennially high-scoring, and, last year, their 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva held the #19 spot on the Wine Spectator Top 100 and earned 96 Points. At $28, you’ve got to try this.

Commanding a presence from the blockbuster 2016 Vintage, which the Wine Spectator rated the overall vintage in Chianti 97 Points and referenced “Vibrant, elegant wines.”

Created from 100% Sangiovese and aged for the required 24 months before bottling, the 2016 has a solid build, with concentrated black fruits, a satiny texture, spices, and cassis. Simply put, this is a seriously high-quality Chianti at a value price.

2015 BIBBIANO VIGNA DEL CAPANNINO GRAN SELEZIONE CHIANTI CLASSICO

When our panel tasted Bibbiano’s 2015 Gran Selezione Chianti back in April, we knew immediately that it was a picture-perfect example of stunning Chianti Classico.  We went BIG, and bought all we could… If you read the most recent issue of Wine Spectator Insider, this one might have caught your eye with an incredible 96 Point score and modest price.  After all, it is from Tuscany’s best vintage in nearly 2 decades… The wine was created from 100% Sangiovese Grosso (Brunello) and aged for 30 months before bottling. It has a lovely satiny texture and long resonant finish, and at under forty per bottle this 96 Point Blockbuster has everything that I look for in great Chianti Classico.  If you missed our offer on this one back in April, here’s one more chance, but this time, it may not last the day…

Chianti Classico fans had a lot to be thankful for when the Italian Wine Authority approved a new classification above Riserva called Gran Selezione (Great Selection.)  It represents the pinnacle of quality for Chianti Classico.  The new class must be created from 100% Estate grown fruit, or a selection of the Estate’s best parcels…  It also has higher extract restrictions and longer oak aging requirements. If you want to taste a seriously high-quality Chianti at a value price, this is the perfect opportunity.

2014 BIBBIANO CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA

As much as I love the innovative and forward styles of New World wines (wines from countries where Vitis Vinifera or wine grapes did NOT originate), there’s something to be said about a winery that’s been around in the Old World (think Europe) since 1865.  With trials and tribulations that span more than 150 years, many of the best wines in the Old World give you that feeling of antiquity and historical relevance when you taste them.  I gained that very impression when I tasted Bibbiano’s Chianti Classico Riserva.  With rock-solid poise, immense depth and precisely delineated flavors, the wine’s powerfully complex dark fruits, spices and subtle smoke are classic to the Old World style, and are intermixed with a newfound love and appreciation for a region that produces some of the best wines in the world.

Created from 100% Sangiovese and aged for the required 24 months before bottling, this wine has a lovely dense and satiny texture that comes lined with spices, dried flowers and cassis.  At under thirty per bottle this Riserva has everything that I look for in great Chianti Classico.  I wouldn’t wait for the scores to come out before securing your case, because there are few cases imported of this stunning wine.

2013 BIBBIANO CHIANTI CLASSICO, GRAN SELEZIONE

Where do you go after Riserva? The Italian Wine Authority recently approved a new classification above Riserva called Gran Selezione (Great Selection.)  It represents the pinnacle of quality for Chianti Classico.  The new class must be created from 100% Estate grown fruit or a selection of the Estate’s best parcels…  It also has higher extract restrictions and longer oak aging requirements.  This is a big win for Italian wine lovers, since Chianti Classico can range $5 to several hundred per bottle, the new class gives further confidence in a category filled with outstanding wines.  We loved Bibbiano’s 2013 Gran Selezione, which was sleek, silky and brilliantly concentrated.  We also weren’t the only ones to love it… Scoring 93 from the Wine Spectator and 92 from Robert Parker, don’t wait too long to secure a case.

Created from 100% Sangiovese Grosso (Brunello) and aged for the required 30 months before bottling, this wine has a lovely satiny texture and long resonant finish.  The winery was founded in 1865 and under new ownership they’re really making strides in terms of quality.  At under forty per bottle this Gran Selezione has everything that I look for in great Chianti Classico.
