Nicolò Governo all'uso Toscano IGT Toscana Rosso, Bindi Segardi 2019
The late Steven Spurrier (whose memoirs, Wine - A Way of Life I would later publish) introduced me to the hugely talented Alessandra Bindi Sergardi, having warmly recommended her wines at a wine fair some years ago. Steven was right. The wines of Bindi Sergardi are quite exceptional. Exceptional, too, in that they are made with fruit from their vineyards outside Siena which the family have worked since 1349. In recent vintages they have regularly scored 93, 94 and even 95 points.
Nicolò is named after the head of the Bindi Sergardi family and owner of the estate who remembers wines being vinified like this from his childhood. The wine is made through an ancient Tuscan technique called "Governo" which Tom Cannavan from wine-pages.com described a few weeks ago (read below). Here's an exquisite red wine with depth from the combination of two different treatments of the grapes.
Alessandra Bindi Sergardi Casini explains that "Nicolò" encompasses the essence of Bindi Sergardi - 'Authenticity' due to the expression of a single terroir. 'Integrity' due to its ancient method of vinification and 'Audacity' as this is a modern interpretation of an extremely traditional method of making winemkaing.

A deep rich red which will probably age well for some years to come. Nose needs a little time to open before heady brambly aroma excites the nose. Excellent autumn fruit on the mouth followed by good length that lasts. Needs to be put down between sips and goes well with venison steak and saddle of lamb.
