Rocca Di Montegrossi
Rocca di Montegrossi was built in VII-VIII century by Geremia, the forefather of the Ricasoli family. Today the winery produces five different wines: three reds, one rosé and one dessert wine.
The estate extends over an area of 100 hectares; 20 are planted to vine, another 20 are olive groves, and the remainder is woodland, and its altitude is between 350 to 510 mts.
The vineyards are planted primarily to the varietals traditionally grown in Chianti, though there is also a small percentage of international varietals. The primary varietal is Sangiovese, with 13 hectares, followed by Merlot, with 2.5 hectares, while the remaining 4.5 hectares are planted to Canaiolo, Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pugnitello, and Malvasia Bianca grown in Chianti Classico.
Rocca di Montegrossi operates in compliance with environmental regulations.
