Details of wine

The Vecchie Terre di Montefili winery is now led by a trio of American entrepreneurs who bought it in 2016 from the Acuti family, founder of the company.

The new owners wanted to continue the work of their predecessors, following an organic management of these vineyards where Sangiovese is the undisputed master.

Vecchie Terre di Montefili is like a tree that protects all those who are part of its daily life and that has its roots in the past when the Medici produced wines right on these hills.

Everything takes place in total respect and protection of the vine, with careful pruning, spontaneous fermentation and long aging in barrels that can be found in every bottle produced by Vecchie Terre di Montefili.

Bruno di Rocca obtained from Cabernet Sauvignon in purity, is a unique and recognizable wine as it can fully express the environment of Montefili. In its great complexity, thanks also to the refinement in small wood, it releases structure and softness without giving up the lively and fresh note that altitude and galestro give it.

It was 1979 when Roccaldo Acuti, a textile entrepreneur from Prato, bought a small plot in Montefili on the northern slope of the Conca d'Oro di Panzano. With passion and constancy, first he and then his daughter Maria and son-in-law Tommaso Paglione, Piedmontese winemaker, have dedicated themselves to the enhancement of this territory and its expressions in the bottle. In 2016, the Acuti family decided to sell to three American entrepreneurs, Tomas Peck, Frank Bynum and Nicola Marzovilla, who decided to operate under the sign of continuity. In fact, the company is located inside the Conca d'Oro amphitheater, so named for its fertility that made it golden when wheat was grown here, and that with the resolution of the Municipality of Greve in Chianti in 2012 became one of the first biodistretti of Italy. Biological conduction therefore for the ten hectares of vineyard that insist, at 500 meters above sea level, on the typical clayey and rich skeleton lands with Galestro and Alberese. Spurred cordon plants, which become inverted for over forty years, which give life to the amphitheater, the company's flagship wine. Sangiovese obviously master of the vineyard with remnants of earth left to the Cabernet Sauvignon as the only support and as raw material of the Bruno di Rocca that, with the 2012 vintage, is prolonging the maturation, thus skipping the tasting for this year. In the cellar Tommaso Puglione has been replaced by Serena Gusmeri, who is continuing the long maturation between large barrels and 350-liter Tronçais, which have always been accustomed to the company's wines.
