Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico 2013
Rocca di Montegrossi's Chianti Classico is the estate's flagship wine; it is a blend of about 90% Sangiovese, with Canaiolo and Colorino, and is produced every year. It ages for the most part in large casks and barrels made with oak from Allier, for 12-14 months. It is unfiltered, and after bottling ages another 12 months prior to release. In the glass it is lively ruby, with bright violet reflections, and on the nose displays the rich fruity aromas typical of the varietals, in particular forest berry fruit and sour cherries. On the palate it's harmonious and well structured, with nice tannins and savory accents; it will easily age for 4-8 years.
