Consisting of about 90% Sangiovese, and 10% of Canaiolo, the Rocca di Montegrossi
Chianti Classico represents the estate's 'normal' Chianti; it is produced every year. In less good vintages, production of the cru Vigneto San Marcellino is waived in order to guarantee that the 'normal' Chianti retains a consistently high quality.
It spends about 12 months in wood, partly in casks of Allier oak, and partly in barriques. Bottled without filtration, the wine is fined for 12 months more before being released.
The wine has an intense ruby-red color with pronounced violet reflections, and a fruity aroma with scents typical of Sangiovese, especially those of wild berries. Harmonious, well-structured and lightly tannic, it is a wine that can easily mature for a period ranging from four to eight years.
