2014 Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico “Wine of the Vintage”
We just retasted Rocca di Montegrossi’s stupendous 2014 Chianti Classico and agree with everything Vinous says: this gorgeous Sangiovese from the “best area of Chianti Classico” (Antonio Galloni) is without question the wine of the vintage!
Monte in Chianti — a “microzone” of Gaiole in Chianti — is truly the best place for Sangiovese to grow and ripen perfectly. Rocca di Montegrossi’s Chianti Classico is a darker, more concentrated wine, with impeccable balance and finesse.

2014 Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico
The 2014 Chianti Classico is a surprisingly powerful, potent wine. Black cherry, smoke, licorice and dark spices fill out the wine’s ample frame effortlessly. The sheer depth and intensity are impressive and show why this is such a great site. Sweet rose petal, spice and mint are some of the many nuances that blossom as the wine sits in the glass. Put simply, this is one of the wines of the vintage. — Antonio Galloni (Oct 2016)
