A brief history

In one of the most captivating and renowned areas of Chianti Classico region, near the hamlet of Monti in Chianti, approximately 7 km south of Gaiole in Chianti, you’ll find Rocca di Montegrossi estate, owned by Marco Ricasoli Firidolfi, a descendant of Bettino Ricasoli, who wrote the history of the region and Chianti Classico wine.

The estate produces two Chianti Classicos. Both are based on Sangiovese, which, in this area, yields an extremely elegant, balanced wine with pleasant minerality. To further increase the complexity of the wines, two indigenous complementary varietals are added: Canaiolo (in 2000 a further vineyard was planted using cuttings from selected vines in the estate’s older vineyards) and Pugnitello. Monti in Chianti is one of the areas of Chianti Classico best suited to the cultivation of the vine, and for this reason Rocca di Montegrossi’s owner Marco Ricasoli Firidolfi decided to also plant varietals that have nothing to do with tradition (Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon), but that allow the terroir to different expressions.
