Rocca di Montegrossi

Rocca di Montegrossi
Located in the Commune of Galole, in the heart of Chianti, Rocca di Montegrossi was established in the 7th Century AD, by the family's ancestor Geremia. Surviving the reign of Frederick the Great, the battles of the Florentines and the razing by Charles V's troops, the family of Rocca di Montegrossi has shown great fortitude over the years, including the strength of conviction of its present holder, Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi. Restoring and modernizing the winery in 2000, Marco has been practicing organic in the vineyards since 2006, and certified organic since 2010. Totaling 100 ha, the family estate has 20 ha under vine and 20 ha of olive groves, while the rest is woodlands. Consisting mostly of Sangiovese (13 ha) with 2.5 ha of Merlot, Marco has dedicated most of his remaining vineyards to indigenous varietals such as Canalolo, Colorino and Pugnitello. Following suit with the clear focus of his vision, Marco only produces the Vigneto San Marcellino Chianti Classico when the vintage is right; and in really poor years, such as 2002 with the Chianti Classico, he makes highly revered wines. "Marco knows the problems of Chianti," says Greg, "but he believes in the area, and if you're in the right area, you can make really great wines." For the Vin Santo Del Chianti Classico, grapes are hung to dry on the vinsantaia (pictured above). In a 90-square meter room, 160 nets hang from the ceiling, drying from harvest until February. Every ten days, women come in to cut out and remove the bad grapes, because at Rocca di Montegrossi, only the best belongs in the bottle. Visit the Rocca di Montegrossi website.
