Ignobile - 2016
Ignobile means as much as "not noble" - but what can clearly be considered as not true if you have already tasted the Ignobile. Monia Piccini and her husband Franco, the two owners of Il Palagio di Panzano, are responsible for this uncomplicated, easily accessible red wine made from one hundred per cent Sangiovese grapes. The grapes come from the San Martino vineyard, in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine region. It presents itself fresh and fruity in the glass, with the expressive scent typical for Sangiovese. The best way to enjoy the "Ignobile" is to simply enjoy it well chilled in a summer barbecue evening with friends. An easy wine for uncomplicated evenings.
The Conca d’Oro: special sites for special wines
In Panzano in Chianti, which lies exactly between Florence and Siena in the Chianti Classico wine region in Tuscany, you will find numerous top wineries. Panzano is regarded as the "organic wine region" par excellence: almost all estates here work sustainably or are already certified organic. The vineyards on Il Palagio di Panzano have also been cultivated organically since 2007 and have been officially certified organic since 2013. The vineyards extend over the famous Conca d’Oro, the golden valley, and the San Martino vineyard is the cooler part. Here, in this unique spot in Tuscany, amidst one of the oldest appellations in the world, the sun shines all day long on the Sangiovese and Merlot grapes of Il Palagio di Panzano. The special geographical position of Panzano ensures a warm climate during the day and a cooler night - ideal for the production of fruity and elegant red wines that are full of character and strength. And, of course, for the production of olive oil…
For the love of red wine, Panzano and Tuscany
The wines of Monia and Franco Piccini can be tasted and bought not only directly at the winery, but also in the centre of Panzano, in a small but fine shop. The entire range: Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva and the top wine Le Bambole, which is the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, as well as the simple Ignobile and the elegant Torgentile. With the exception of Torgentile, which is made from 60% Merlot and 40% Sangiovese grapes, all three Chianti Classico and Ignobile wines have been produced only from Sangiovese autochthonous grape variety since the 2014 vintage - certified organic since 2013! And you can taste this love and care with every single glass of red wine!
