"The Geremia, Rocca di Montegrossi's Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, is outrageously beautiful in 2015. Racy and pliant, with soft curves, Geremia captures all of the radiant beauty of the vintage. Sweet red cherry, plum, mint, mocha and sweet spice are all fused together. At the moment, there is a touch of new oak that still needs to integrate, but a few more years in bottle should do the trick. Time in the glass brings out attractive floral notes and red-toned fruit character that lend freshness and lift to play off the wine’s more extroverted leanings. The 2015 is a gorgeous Geremia."
"In the commune of Gaiole, Rocca di Montegrossi's Merlot vines sit on the estate's highest vineyards between 400 to 510 metres above sea level. The nose reveals vanilla, spice and a slight prune character, indicative of the extremely warm 2015 vintage. Fragrant tea and mint lend intrigue and freshness. Plump, concentrated brambly berries are hemmed in by plush, ripe tannins in this generous, full-bodied, friendly offering. Finishes with an appealing salty lick. Drinking Window 2021 - 2031."
