ABOUT THIS WINE
Rocca di Montegrossi’s Vinsanto is produced from Malvasia Bianca del Chianti. It is especially well suited to the production of this kind of wine thanks to its aromatic richness, the thickness of the skins of the grapes, and their propensity to oxidize. The bunches of grapes are hung one by one on nets in a well-ventilated area under the rafters. All nets hung from rails. During the drying phase the grapes are affected by noble rot (botrytis cinirea), which confers distinctive, striking characteristics.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Rocca di Montegrossi is located near Monti in Chianti, one of the finest sections of Chianti Classico, about 7 km south of Gaiole in Chianti. The cellars are near the Romanesque church of San Marcellino. Rocca di Montegrossi’s owner, Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi, is descended from a family that played a central role in the history of the Chianti Classico region and laid the foundations for Chianti Classico wine. The estate extends over an area of 100 hectares; 20 are planted to vine, another 20 are olive groves, and the remainder is woodland.
