Rocca di Montegrossi Rosato IGT Toscana 2018
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. 100% Sangiovese from the organically-farmed San Marcellino vineyard.
VM91: Medium pale pink. Floral strawberry, herbs and violets on the inviting nose. Then a slightly candied quality and a hint of residual sweetness diminish the vibrancy of the floral and juicy red berry flavors but contribute to a smooth, round mouthfeel. The finish is long and very precise, with obvious mineral elements emerging. 100% Sangiovese.
