Rocca di Montegrossi Geremia IGT Toscana 2015
Located in the Commune of Galole, in the heart of Chianti, Rocca di Montegrossi was established in the 7th Century by the family's ancestor Geremia. Current owner Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi restored the vineyards here, and only produces wine in the best vintages. Geremia is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s powerful, intense, balanced, and displays the beautiful character of the Monti terroir. Organic.
VM96: The Geremia, Rocca di Montegrossi's Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, is outrageously beautiful in 2015. Racy and pliant, with soft curves, Geremia captures all of the radiant beauty of the vintage. Sweet red cherry, plum, mint, mocha and sweet spice are all fused together. At the moment, there is a touch of new oak that still needs to integrate, but a few more years in bottle should do the trick. Time in the glass brings out attractive floral notes and red-toned fruit character that lend freshness and lift to play off the wine’s more extroverted leanings. The 2015 is a gorgeous Geremia.
