Press Reviews:

`The Rocca di Montegrossi estate, covering 20ha of vines and as many of olive trees in the village of Monti a few kilometres south of Gaiole, was brought back to life in 1990 by Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi, whose cousin Barone Francesco Ricasoli farms the much larger Castello di Brolio on slightly lower slopes nearby. Organic since 2006, vineyard management and cellar work is traditional, while Marco’s puristic approach creates wines that are strikingly modern and full of life. His Super Tuscan IGT Toscana Geremia - named for the family’s founder Geremia and generally a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon - spends 20 days in the fermentation vats and a further 10 days of maceration before being aged for two years 70% in medium-toast barriques and 30% in tonneaux, only one quarter new, for two years before bottling without filtration. I have known this wine through several vintages, opening my final bottle of the 2001 over Christmas and sending a note to Marco that it had ‘the class of a second-growth claret’. He was pleased, but reminded me that his claret ‘spoke Gaiolese’. Indeed it does, with density of colour, sapidity, even succulence on the palate with spice and grip on the finish. This 2015 is well worth waiting for. Drink 2022-2035.`
