Collection: Rock of Montegrossi

In one of the most fascinating and suitable areas of the Chianti Classico area, near the hamlet of Monti in Chianti, about 7 km south of Gaiole in Chianti, is the Rocca di Montegrossi company owned by Marco Ricasoli Firidolfi, a descendant of the who wrote the history of the territory and of Chianti Classico wine.

The cellar is located near the Romanesque parish church of San Marcellino. The total extension of the company is equal to 100 hectares, of which 20 are planted with vineyards, 20 with olive groves and the rest with woods. The vineyards, all on hilly terrain with gentle slopes, of calcareous origin, of medium texture and facing south and south-east, are located at an altitude between 340 and 510 meters above sea level

The cultivated vines are those typical of the Chianti area, to which a small percentage of native varieties has been added. The most represented variety is Sangiovese with 13 hectares, followed by Merlot with 2.5 hectares while Canaiolo, Colorino, Pugnitello, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malvasia Bianca del Chianti count a total of 4.5 hectares.

Vines and olive trees have been under organic farming since 2006 (certified since 2010), and the entire company is oriented towards respect for the environment.
