This "Super- Tuscan" is made from Sangiovese grapes combined with smaller amounts of Merlot and Syrah grapes which are vinified separately, blended and then aged in 350 litres French oak tonneaux for over a year. It displays notes of ripe red fruits and wild berries accompanied by scents of spices and liquorice. This is a wine of great complexity; full bodied with a long finish.

The Vineyard

Rocca di Montemassi is a Maremma farming reality stretching out towards the Metal-bearing Hills (Colline Metallifere) on one side, and towards the sea on the other, enclosing in itself the manifold souls of this corner of Tuscany Maremma: the lush soil rich of treasures, the explosion of light, the austere and sometimes rustic nature. Vineyards lying on hillocks and gentle slopes welcome local and international varieties with equal prosperity, and thanks to the combination of modern technology and ancient wisdom, they generate important wines, full of strength and character. Along with the cultivation of ancient varieties of cereals, the breeding of the precious Maremma cow and the experimental garden complement a varied mosaic, which takes the shape of the ideal example of a Tuscan farm, propulsive force and authentic witness of the contemporary rural life.
