Chianti Classico Docg La Ghirlanda
This wine benefits from Tuscany’s centuries-old tradition in selecting Sangiovese grapes. It is the wine which best represents the estate and its bond with the Chianti Classico territory.
It is called “Classico” because “classically” Chianti wine was produced only in a small territory delimited by the historic will of local winemakers.
La Ghirlanda (garland in English) has always been the toponym of the woods right below Fattoria di Mocenni. We believe the name derives from the round shape of the land these woods grow on, but it is also the symbol of well-deserved glory. It is a beautiful name and it seems appropriate to us.
Location of vineyards
The Ghirlanda vineyard on the Mocenni estate, near Vagliagli, enjoys one of the most fortunate positions in Tuscany. The terrain is characterized by a structure and composition ideal for grapevines, as demonstrated in our records over the years

Shortly after malolactic fermentation the wine is transferred into oak barriques – not brand new ones – where it is aged for 10/15 months. The bottled wine then remains a further 12 months stored in the cellar for refinement prior to its release on the market
Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats where maceration lasts 16 – 18 days at a controlled temperature of 28/30°C
Traditional accompaniments are red meat (both roasts and salted), game, and mature cheeses. Modern cuisine pairs this wine successfully with typical Mediterranean first courses
