Situated in the heart of Tuscany, Rocca Di Montegrossi is a family-owned winery renowned for its high-quality, Sangiovese-based wines. Steeped in history, the estate has been in the hands of the Ricasoli Firidolfi family since the Longobard period (7th-8th centuries AD). Marco Ricasoli Firidolfi, a descendant of Bettino Ricasoli who played a pivotal role in shaping Chianti Classico, currently owns the winery.

Rocca Di Montegrossi embraces minimal intervention winemaking, allowing the distinct characteristics of their Chianti Classico terroir to shine through in each bottle. The grapes are hand-harvested at peak ripeness and sorted to ensure only the finest fruits reach the fermentation tanks. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, helping to preserve the grapes’ fresh fruit aromas. Following fermentation, the wines are aged in a combination of French oak barrels and Slavonian oak casks, infusing the wines with subtle hints of spice and vanilla.

Rocca Di Montegrossi’s primary focus is Sangiovese-dominant wines. Their offerings include Chianti Classico DOCG, Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG, and a Rosato Tuscana to name a few.

Rocca Di Montegrossi’s dedication to minimal intervention, meticulous grape selection, and traditional aging techniques allows them to craft exceptional wines that reflect the essence of Italian winemaking.
