Achille IGT Toscana, Bindi Sergardi 2021
Alessandra Casini Bindi Sergardis 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, a perfectionist wine maker and at the helm of this great cantina for 15 or more years is the 24th Bindi Sergardi, who still astonishingly own 1,000 hectares of vineyards.This is Tuscan wine at its best, without going into the stratosphere of super-Tuscans. We were introduced by the late great Steven Spurrier.

About Bindi Sergardi:
With 23 generations of winemaking on a property dating back to the early 14th century, Bindi Sergardi are woven very deeply into Sienese history and tradition. You could say Bindi Sergardi are Tuscan winemaking.
The estate’s beautiful 1000 hectares are set among the ancient villages of Vagliagli and Monteriggioni and within Chianti’s three prestigious DOCGs: Classico, Chianti and Chianti Colli. Alessandra has been at the helm since 2005, bringing new light to the family business and ensuring their Achille, Governo all'uso and 'La Ghirlanda' continue in rendering wines of exceptional elegance and expression.

FBD description is spot on. Delicious, well-made wine with a touch of elegance, excellent with food and yet affordable and good value for money. Baby super-Tuscan. Will buy again.
Still excellent value from a very good producer. Just right with the oak for me.
