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 mainly in large casks and barrels made with oak from Allier, for 12-14 months. It is unfiltered, and after bottling it ages another 6 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, particularly 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 7-10 years.

Wine SpectatorA smoky note runs through this intense, powerful red, along with tar, leather, black cherry and iron flavors. Dense and juicy, with a long, vibrant aftertaste echoing tar and fruit elements. Best from 2018 through 2026. 4,160 cases made.
