Rocca di Montemassi

A “wine farm” nestled in the heart of the Tuscan coast

About the winery
The Rocca di Montemassi Estate is a historic landmark in Maremma. It is a place where one can enjoy the renaissance of rural values as well as a vigorous yet elegant landscape that has no equal anywhere else in the world. Today Rocca di Montemassi embodies the soul of the Tuscan Maremma and of its people. It is a land full of contrasts and wonders, where the sunlight not only ripens the grapes but also makes the wine gleam; where the sea breeze not only scents the air but also sweetens the musts; and where the soil not only nourishes but also warms the roots of the vines. The property is situated in the Monteregio DOC appellation on the Mediterranean coast of Tuscany. The property has 430 hectares, 160 of which are dedicated to vines.

History & Geography
The style of Rocca di Montemassi’s wines perfectly reflect the soil’s strong mineral properties, the bright light of the sun and the beneficial effects of the sea breeze. The range is characterized by a unique versatility which spans from white Vermentino, to Rosé, to Sangiovese-based reds, to the Super Tuscans.The devotion to the territory is exemplified by the integration of wine with typical, raditional Maremma products. In 2017 a new project began with the aim of rediscovering and preserving the value of local traditions: • The cultivation of durum wheat from an ancient variety called ‘Massimo X Meridio II’ for the production of a single-grain pasta. • The introduction of the Maremmana breed of cow. The Maremmana are one of the most recognizable breeds of cow because of their long horns and greyish coat. This rural and unspoilt area is their ideal habitat: they live alone, simply eating wild grass.
