2011 Rocca di Montegrossi "Geremia" Toscana

SKU #1217776 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2011 Geremia, the estate's Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend, offers tons of energy to balance its dark, inky fruit. Lavender, menthol, melted road tar, sage, crème de cassis and grilled herbs are some of the many signatures. The ripeness and raciness of the year come through in spades, yet there is an element of pulsating intensity in the glass that plays off the more overt elements nicely. This is another superb showing from Rocca di Montegrossi. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A soft and rich Super Tuscan with lots of juicy and ripe fruit. Very reminiscent of the New World with its fruit-forward character. Full body, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. A Napa-inspired blend of Merlot and Cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (8/2015)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A powerful red, this remains smooth in texture and focused, delivering plum, black cherry, savory and mineral flavors. The acidity and dusty tannins drive the finish, which echoes the savory elements. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

K&L Notes

"Geremia" is a Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi, an organic grower in the Chianti Classico region. From the winery: "It ages exclusively in medium-toast barriques from Allier for about 24 months, after which it is bottled without filtration and bottle aged for another 18 months. It is a powerful, intense wine that also displays elegance and balance, and expresses the character of the terroir. Intense ruby, with violet nail, and with complex aromas that bring to mind sour cherries, currants and other wild berry fruit, mingled with licorice and vanilla. A wine of great structure and complexity, which is soft and velvety thanks to its richness and the perfect ripeness of the tannins."

Geremia is 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 24 months in French oak. Lots of dark skinned fruit with spice, minerals, and toasty oak that complete each other on the nose and palate, and the wine has pleasantly soft tannins, but good acidity to pull it all together.

The nose of this wine just exudes complexity, the 65% Merlot – 35% Cabernet Sauvignon Super Tuscan blend is full of high toned, focused, dark cherry fruit surrounded by hints of leather, spice and cassis. On the palate the wine is supple, dense but has an incredible lift and brightness but all couched in a concentrated combination of dark fruits and spice. A long, sinuous, muscular finish that is incredibly balanced, and will continue to evolve for a decade plus….if I could stop from drinking it now, it’s so damned tasty!
Drink from 2015 to 2030
