Rocca di Montegrossi Vin Santo Chianti Classico DOC

A very special golden-yellow drop

The Vin Santo from Rocca di Montegrossi is one of the best of its kind in the entire Chianti Classico. It is not for nothing that the "Vinsantaia" in the attic is the figurehead of the winery. In a room of approximately 90 sq. m, there are 160 movable nets on rails on which the grapes are suspended. Suspended? Correct! This is because Vin Santo is the result of a very complex production process that takes several years. The grapes, Malvasia Bianco di Toscana, are usually harvested at the beginning of September and hung in the naturally ventilated attic to dry. Until December the grapes "dry out" under controlled conditions and are then pressed. Only around one seventh of the harvested quantity of grapes remains as grape must. For further vinification and ripening, the precious juice is stored in so-called Caratelli for at least six years. These are small barrels made of three types of wood, oak, mulberry and cherry. Finally, the sweet wine is bottled in small 0,375 liter bottles, where it remains for at least another twelve months. The result is an amber-coloured delight in the glass, which offers a broad spectrum of aromas in the nose, reminiscent of dried apricots and peaches, figs, orange and lemon peel, honey, walnuts and almonds, vanilla, coffee and much more. Sweet on the palate, but not too sweet, balanced, and with a taste reminiscent of the aromas in the nose and an endless finish. And of course, this outstanding Vin Santo from Rocca di Montegrossi is an excellent accompaniment to many desserts, but also to savoury dishes that require a little sweetness, such as foie gras.

Monti in Chianti: the heart of Tuscany

Monti in Chianti is undoubtedly one of the most special wine-growing areas in Chianti Classico, the oldest wine-growing region in the world. Here in the heart of Tuscany - located exactly between Florence and Siena - you will find numerous renowned wineries in the immediate proximity. One of them is the certified organic Rocca di Montegrossi winery. Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi, owner of Rocca di Montegrossi, also has a "historical background": he is a descendant of the Ricasoli noble family, which still has its family seat today in the Castello di Brolio in Gaiole in Chianti. Through Bettino Ricasoli, who once established the first production rule for Chianti Classico, the family is still inextricably linked to the area and wine production. This connection with history is also reflected in the names of two red wines from Rocca di Montegrossi: Geremia, the name given to the super tuscan, was the first of the Ricasoli family to settle in this area. Or the San Marcellino, named after the churche built in 1,000 A.D. on the vineyard next to which the grapes for the Gran Selezione still grow today.

Quality is a top priority at Rocca di Montegrossi

Together with his oenologist Attilio Pagli, Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi is responsible for the high quality of the wines on Rocca di Montegrossi. The main product in the assortment - just in terms of quantity - is the excellent Chianti Classico. The Vigneto San Marcellino Chianti Classico Gran Selezione expresses the elegance and complexity of old vines. The vines, up to 45 years old, grow in the immediate vicinity of the small church of the same name. Made from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the Geremia, the super tuscan from Rocca di Montegrossi, brings internationality to the assortment while at the same time expressing in an incomparable way the diversity of the wonderful terroir of Monti in Chianti. A faithful companion through the summer is the fruity fresh Rosato. But without a doubt, the flagship of the winery is the Vin Santo, which is not sacred but heavenly - in a quality that is seldom found elsewhere.

Chianti Classico mit viel Tradition und noch mehr Moderne

Der Satz „Moderne trifft auf Tradition“ wird im Zusammenhang mit Chianti Classico gerne verwendet. Vielleicht trifft dies gerade beim Weingut Rocca di Montegrossi in Monti in Chianti, inmitten der historischen Weinregion zwischen Florenz und Siena, besonders zu. Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi, selbst ein Nachfahre jener Familie, die mit Chianti Classico untrennbar verbunden ist, führt ein junges, jugendliches Weingut. Die Rebflächen befinden sich unweit des Castello di Brolio. Seit einigen Jahren wird dieses Weingut biologisch geführt, nicht nur mit Bedacht auf Nachhaltigkeit im Weinberg, für Kellerarbeiten nutzt man einerseits Solarenergie als auch Regenwasser. Mit viel Bedacht auf Tradition werden die herausragenden Rotweine aus einerseits autochthonen als auch internationalen Rebsorten, aber auch das Spitzenprodukt des Hauses, der Vinsanto, hergestellt.

What other people think about 2007 Vinsanto Chianti Classico DOC from Rocca di Montegrossi ...

Gambero Rosso 2Glaeser 
Veronelli 3Sternerot
L'Espresso 1Flasche
Vini Buoni 1 star
Wine Spectator 94 points "Intense and viscous, offering fig, honey, molasses and mineral flavors. The plush texture and sweetness is offset by vibrant acidity, keeping this dessert wine focused and clean on the long aftertaste. 581 cases made." – BS  
Vinous 93 points "The 2007 Vin Santo comes across as quite laid back, which is surprising given the intensity of the year. Coconut, tropical fruits, a host of dried flowers, mint and spices grace the palate in an impeccably balanced Vin Santo from Rocca di Montegrossi. As always, the estate's Vin Santo is one of the richest wines readers will come across, although the 2007 is not as intense as some recent editions. Even so, Rocca di Montegrossi's 2007 is among the most dense, voluptuous Vin Santos I tasted this year." - Antonio Galloni

 

What other people think about 2006 Vinsanto Chianti Classico DOC from Rocca di Montegrossi ...

Gambero Rosso 2Glaeser 
Robert Parker 96 points "The 2006 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (375-milliliters) is packed unthinkably tight with honey, maple syrup, brown sugar and crème brûlée. This is an unbelievably beautiful wine that flaunts extreme precision and abundant aromatic intensity. The mouthfeel is succulent and rich with honey-like viscosity that allows the wine to wrap over the palate in careful slow motion. The finish is luscious and deep, and despite the very high residual sugar, this Vin Santo del Chianti Classico shows impressive complexity and overall elegance. The natural acidity and the 12.5% alcoholic content keeps the wine from ever feeling too heavy."
Wine Spectator 95 points "Aromas and flavors of molasses, Muscat raisin and caramel are the hallmarks of this sweet, unctuous dessert white. The finish is creamy and resonant, showing freshness and harmony. 185 cases made." – BS  
James Suckling 95 points "Dark colored amber. So much dried, sweet cherries. Full-bodied and very sweet with syrup, yet fresh and amazing. A unique sweet wine. Drink forever. A joy to taste by the tea spoon."
Vinous 94 points "Rocca di Montegrossi often makes one of the richest Vin Santos in Chianti Classico. The 2006 is a bit less opulent than is often the case, but that just means the Vin Santo is not a blockbuster. Voluptuous and beautifully layered throughout, the 2006 offers an attractive infusion of dried herbs, wild flowers, coconut, mint and leather, all wrapped around a core of dark, deeply spiced fruit." - Antonio Galloni

 

What other people think about 2005 Vinsanto Chianti Classico DOC from Rocca di Montegrossi ...

Robert Parker 94 points "The delicious 2005 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (95% Malvasia Bianca with Canaiolo aged seven years in traditional caratelli barrels made with oak, cherry and mulberry wood) shows gorgeous concentration with thick glycerin that slowly oozes down the side of the glass with thick streaks of amber-colored liquid. The aromas deliver amazing intensity with explosive highlights of candied fruit, brown sugar or maple syrup, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, dried apricot and lemon curd. This is an excellent expression of one of Italy’s most precious wines."
Wine Spectator 97 points "A thick, creamy dessert wine, exuding apricot, fig paste, caramel, roasted walnut and orange peel aromas and flavors. For all its mouthcoating intensity on the attack, this finishes clean and lingers with treacle, nut and spice notes. 125 cases made." – BS  
Vinous 94 points "The 2005 Vin Santo is fabulous. This is one of the richer, more textured Vin Santos readers will come across, the result of six years spent in a range of cherry, moro and oak barrels. Expressive floral and spice notes meld into a core of dried cherries, figs, tobacco and leather. There is plenty of power and viscosity in the glass, but never excess heaviness. The Vin Santo at Rocca di Montegrossi is 95% Malvasia and 5% Canaiolo. This is another terrific showing from proprietor Marco Ricasoli." - Antonio Galloni

 

What other people think about 2004 Vinsanto Chianti Classico DOC from Rocca di Montegrossi ...

Gambero Rosso 2Glaeser 
Robert Parker 94 points "The 2004 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is another in a series of beautiful, exotic sweet wines from Rocca di Montegrossi. It is a huge wine bursting with dried figs, molasses, burnt sugar, spices and dried flowers, all of which come together in a dense, full-throttle style. Expressive aromatics are woven throughout, which keep the wine fresh and vibrant. The estate’s 2004 Vin Santo was made from 95% Malvasia and 5% Canaiolo Nero. The fruit was dried for three months, and the wine spent 5 years and 7 months in small barrels of oak, cherry and mulberry. Residual sugar was a whopping 388 grams."
Wine Spectator 98 points "Like nectar, this is thick and pure, yet almost weightless as it layers the apricot, honey and burnt molasses flavors effortlessly from start to finish. Shows amazing harmony, and the flavors last long after there is no liquid on the palate. 208 cases made." – BS
