Rocca di Montegrossi Toscana Geremia 2011 1.5L
AG95: "The 2011 Geremia, the estate's Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend, offers tons of energy to balance its dark, inky fruit. Lavender, menthol, melted road tar, sage, crème de cassis and grilled herbs are some of the many signatures. The ripeness and raciness of the year come through in spades, yet there is an element of pulsating intensity in the glass that plays off the more overt elements nicely. This is another superb showing from Rocca di Montegrossi."
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 Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s full of dark, inky fruit and displays the beautiful character of the Monti terroir. Organic.
