Bindi Sergardi Achille Toscana 2020
One of the most iconic wine-producing families in Siena is Bindi-Sergardi. Alessandra Casini Bindi-Sergardi is the current manager of the Bindi-Sergardi grape growing and wine-making empire that dates back nearly 700 years. Alessandra Casini Bindi Sergardi’s Achille is a lovely fruit led sangiovese from her estate outside Siena, named after an early ancestor who fought the Medici return to Florence.
Alessandra, has been the winemaker for more that 15 years and is the 24th Bindi Sergardi, who still astonishingly own 1,000 hectares of vineyards.
Achille is very drinkable bright and vibrant made from a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot with notes of ripe cherries and blackberries. Luscious freshness and also a pleasing warmth and texture. A touch of barrel-ageing adds a hint of toast and spice.
