"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.

 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."

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.
