Colle-Massari-Rosso-Riserva-Montecucco-2014

Colle Massari, Rosso Riserva Montecucco , 2014

ColleMassari is the most important and largest estate of the Montecucco appellation. The vineyards are located on the Montecucco hill that gives name to the appellation. The vines on the Montecucco hill are the oldest Sangiovese vines of the DOCG (more than 60 years old).

Although it is a “new” DOCG, wine has been made in Montecucco since the time of the Etruscans in the 8th century. The wine making tradition is now continued by Maria Iris Bertarelli and Claudio Tipa, who purchased the vineyard in 1998 to be the heart of the Montecucco DOC that it was their vision to create. Montecucco is located between Montalcino, and Scansano, and benefits from microclimates similar to both of those regions.

“Shows energy and focus with black cherry and berry character and hints of dark tea. Medium body, integrated fruit and fine tannins. A beauty. Drink now. Made from organic grapes.”
