Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico Organic 2021

Tuscany, ItalyThe Ricasoli-Firidolfi family traces its origins in the Chianti Classico fabric to Baron Bettino Ricasoli, who created the original formula for Chianti Classico, a blend of grapes, in 1872, and even further back when a family member named Geremia was involved in battles between warring families on the same property in the mid-1100s The Rocca of Montegrossi was a strategic post, located on a plateau, providing shelter for travelling dignitaries. The Rocca di Montegrossi estate is in Monti in Chianti, part of Gaiole in Chianti. The high altitude plateau, with its stony, calcareous soils, is known for its elegant and harmonious Chianti Classico. Experts have recognized the 2021's as among the very best ever made in the region. At Montegrosso, they blend minor amounts of local varieties like colorino and canaiolo with 90% of sangiovese. This wine has a beautiful depth, a testament to the vintage and the rising star of Chianti Classico. Harmonious and long, it is simply impressive for the money. Mushroom pasta continues to be a brilliant match. Wonderful value.Tasted: 28 October 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
