Rocca di Montegrossi’s
Chianti Classico is the estate’s flagship wine; it is a blend of about
90% Sangiovese, with Canaiolo and Colorino, and is produced every year.
It ages mainly in large casks and barrels made with oak from Allier,
for 12-14 months. It is unfiltered, and after bottling it ages another 6
months prior to release. In the glass it is lively ruby, with bright
violet reflections, and on the nose displays the rich fruity aromas
typical of the varietals, particularly forest berry fruit and sour
cherries. On the palate it’s harmonious and well structured, with nice
tannins and savory accents; it will easily age for 7-10 years. Annual
production is about 50,000 bottles.
