From the producer's website:

"We are dedicating our Chianti Colli Senesi “Al canapo” to Siena, the city that represents our history and tradition of the Palio. The Palio is in the essence of Siena, taking place in summertime when the vines on the Sienese hills are full of life and transmitting enthusiasm. The vines parallel the excitement and expectations of the Sienese people during the Palio days. As the horses quiver with excitement at the starting line, “al canapo”, so do the Sienese hearts quicken. With its ruby red color and its minerality, our “Al canapo” wine brings back those special moments of joyful anticipation."

From the producer’s website: Bindi Sergardi is a farm which has stayed in the same family since the 1349 and has been passed from one generation to the next in natural succession. It has undergone all the phases of good agricultural practice in use over the centuries and has now had to accept its transformation into a family company, justified and made necessary by the dimensions of a property which comprises over a thousand hectares.
The lay of the land does not consent extensive cultivations in this day and age, but imposes a search for niche products of high quality, vocation and imagination. A natural consequence of this is that the members of the  family who today run the farm (represented by two generations: Nicolò Casini and his daughter Alessandra) have emphasized two main sectors, namely fine wine and traditional crops in rotation, with a side line of olive oil from our hills in Chianti.
