Rocca di Montegrossi - Tuscany

We are also excited to announce that Rocca di Montegrossi has been named in the TOP 100 Winery list by Wine&Spirits Magazine. This is the third time Rocca di Montegrossi has recieved this honor (previously in 2016 and 2018).

“Rocca di Montegrossi doesn't seem to get the attention of some of its neighbours, but year after year Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi turns out impeccable, striking wines that sit at the very top of the hierarchy in Chianti Classico and Italy more broadly. These new releases are no exception. The wines usually need at least a few years in bottle to come into their own, but make no mistake about it, these are some of the very best wines being made in Italy today.”
— Antonio Galloni, October 2016

Rocca di Montegrossi is located in Monti in Chianti close to the Romanesque church of San Marcellino. Long regarded as one of the finest sections of Chianti Classico, Montegrossi boasts such neighbors as Montevertine, Badia a Coltibuono, & Riecine. The estate encompasses about 100 hectares; 20 of which are planted to vine, another 20 are olive groves, and the remainder is forest. The vineyards are on gentle south and southeast-facing hillsides with calcareous loamy soils, at elevations between 340 and 510 meters above sea level. The primary varietal is Sangiovese (13 hectares), followed by Merlot (2.5 hectares), while the remaining 4.5 hectares are planted to Canaiolo, Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pugnitello, and Malvasia Bianca del Chianti.

The estate produces two wines with the Chianti Classico designation. Both are based on Sangiovese, which in this area yields an extremely elegant, balanced wine with pleasant minerality. To further increase the complexity of the wines, three complementary indigenous varieties are added: Canaiolo, Colorino, and Pugnitello. Geremia is the estate’s IGT wine comprised of 70% Merlot with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and a rosato is also produced in small quantities. The crown jewel of the estate is the vin santo, produced in a painstakingly traditional manner according to Marco’s mother’s original specifications.  Marco is assisted at the estate by consulting enologist, Attilio Pagli.
