Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Chianti Classico explodes from the glass with a kaleidoscope of black cherries, minerals, flowers and underbrush. The wine reveals stunning length and an intense, satisfying finish. This dense, full-bodied wine is truly a remarkable effort at this level. It also happens to be an incredible value. The Chianti Classico is 90% Sangiovese, 5% Colorino and 5% Canaiolo that spent 12 months in French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017. "

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
