Chianti Classico’s finest Rocca di Montegrossi
Rocca di Montegrossi is located near Monti in Chianti, one of the finest sections of Chianti Classico, where Chianti Classico was born. Rocca di Montegrossi’s estate, located in the micro-area of Monti in Chianti, is morphologically a smaller plateau inside the wider plateau of Chianti Classico, and its altitude is between 350 to 510 meters with exposures to the south and southwest. The cellars are close to the Romanesque Church. The estate has over 100 hectares of land with forests, vines, and olives.
Viticulture at the winery
Almost 20 hectares of vineyards are present planted on loamy calcareous soils at an optimum altitude for cultivation. Chianti varieties are grown the most, while some international grapes are grown too. Sangiovese is the main grape, followed by Merlot. Pugnitello, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malvasia Bianca, Colorino, Canaiolo, etc. grow in less quantity. The best grapes are taken to the cellar for making red, rose, and dessert wines. Proper care and techniques help give the right structure and elegance to the wines.
Organic certified since 2010
The estate switched to organic farming in 2006 and are certified since 2010. A lot of care and energy conservation, and reuse is done to preserve the environment and health of the vineyards. Oak vats are used for temperature-controlled fermentation of grapes, after which ageing is done in tonneaux and oak casks. The place is not just famous for Chianti Classico and Toscana wines but also for the stunning surroundings and beauty.
