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.

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.
80% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, 10% Syrah
Highly intense ruby red.
Rich and complex with up-front notes of ripe red fruit and wild berries accompanied by scents of spices and licorice.
Full-bodied and encompassing, with a persistent and slightly spicy finish.
This full-bodied wine combines superbly with dishes of the Tuscan tradition: pappardelle con sugo di cinghiale (wide noodles with wild boar sauce), bistecca fiorentina (grilled steak), roast game and hard savoury cheeses.
