Rocca di Montemassi Le Focaie Sangiovese Toscana 2017

Rocca di Montemassi is a Maremma farming reality stretching out towards the Metal-bearing Hills (Colline Metallifere) on one side, and towards the sea on the other, enclosing in itself the manifold souls of this corner of Tuscany Maremma: the lush soil rich of treasures, the explosion of light, the austere and sometimes rustic nature. Vineyards lying on hillocks and gentle slopes welcome local and international varieties with equal prosperity, and thanks to the combination of modern technology and ancient wisdom, they generate important wines, full of strength and character. Along with the cultivation of ancient varieties of cereals, the breeding of the precious Maremma cow and the experimental garden complement a varied mosaic, which takes the shape of the ideal example of a Tuscan farm, propulsive force and authentic witness of the contemporary rural life.

Since the sixth century before Christ, during the Etruscan period in the territory of Montemassi was never stopped the cultivation of the vine. The grounds of the estate are dominated by a fortified settlement dating back probably to the tenth century. It is with the family of Aldobrandeschi that the castle comes alive in medieval history, until their expulsion in 1260, when the Sienese troops destroyed the castle. Pannochieschi will be to rebuild it, equipping it with a new fortification, until the fateful year, 1328, which was the attempted rebellion in Siena, with the help of Castruccio Castracani. But the Sienese militia had won. The event was immortalized in the famous painting by Simone Martini, which is in the public palace of Siena, depicting Guidoriccio da Fogliano on horseback in the background, in addition to Montemassi castle, painted the tents of the camp surrounded by some of his troops vineyards. The property south of Montemassi was assigned to the family of Siena Bichi.
