Rocca di Montegrossi - winery in Gaiole in Chianti
Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi is a descendant of the family who wrote the history of the Chianti Classico’s land. Rocca di Montegrossi was built in VII-VIII century by Geremia, the forefather of the Ricasoli family. Today the winery produces five different wines: three reds, one rosé and one dessert wine. The vineyards are planted primarily to the varietals traditionally grown in Chianti, though there is also a small percentage of international varietals. The primary varietal is Sangiovese followed by Merlot and then some planted to Canaiolo, Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pugnitello, and Malvasia Bianca grown in Chianti Classico.
