Rosé di Montemaggio IGT is an organic Tuscan wine with a vivid rose color, and a fruity bouquet. It is made from 100% Sangiovese grapes and it has a full and refreshing taste. It is the result of the transient encounter with the must of the Sangiovese grapes’ skin. The short hours spent together give to this wine its vivid rose color and a morbid character with a bit of acidity, freshness and lightness.

Other details

Rosé di Montemaggio is mainly produced with grapes picked from an early harvest from the cooler areas of the Sangiovese vineyards, for the purpose of obtaining good acidity, a lower alcoholic gradation and therefore obtaining freshness and lightness in the wine. The skins are left in contact with the liquid for only one night until achieving the desired coloration and the necessary complexity.

Subsequently, the skins are separated and the fermentation takes place at low temperatures in stainless steel vats for few days. The wine is bottled following about few months of refinement and released into the market when we think that is finally ready. The bottle of this rose wine has a glass pink cork to preserve the quality and the authentic taste of this wine.

More…..

During the last few years Rose wine finally gained the attention it long deserved and the consumption of it started to rise. However just few years back for some reason the general public believed that Rose was done purely from the second-hand grapes that somehow were not good enough for the production of the red wines. This misconception is not applicable to Rose di Montemaggio, which is done from 100% Sangiovese ( same as Classico, Riserva and Gran Selezione) but taken from a different part of the vine lines and different parts of the estate. We try to pick earlier then the full maturation in order to increase the acidity, and hence decrease the alcohol. As a result we have a very fresh wine, with a lot of vivid colour – an ideal summer (or not only…..) companion. Make sure to notice the glass cork too – which saves a lot of wine from the defects of the cork, but still remains sophisticated and classy method of bottle closure. You can then recycle it as a jar for the water or olive oil.

The current vintage is 2019.

The Chianti region

The Chianti region in Tuscany, Italy, has a rich history, a reputation that has made a dramatic roller coaster ride and, ultimately, the ability to produce incredible wines with phenomenal value.

Chianti is considered the world's first bounded wine region - a title that dates back to 1716, a time when the Republic of Florence was flourishing and had a hold on much of the wealth of Central Europe.

When the wine was first produced in Chianti, documents indicate that it was a white wine. Only in 1872 was the first mention of the modern version of Chianti wine established, with a letter indicating that Chianti had to be made with at least 70% from Sangiovese, and the other 30% from Canaiolo grapes or a white grape to soften the power of Sangiovese.

The Chianti Classico appellation has some disagreement and confusion in its origin, which ultimately has an effect on the fame of the product.  The origin of Chianti Classico was born when an increasing number of producers of inferior quality began to distribute wine under the name Chianti and the boundaries of where Chianti was located became increasingly unclear.

In 1924 a group of producers came together to create the Chianti Classico Consortium in an attempt to protect the quality and heritage of the original Chianti wines. The original Chianti region - now called Chianti Classico - covers 17,640 hectares and extends from just south of Florence to just north of Siena. For reference, the entire Chianti region amounts to 177,500 acres.

The Story Behind The Label

Fattoria di Montemaggio’s mission is the result of the passion, love, and dedication of all the people that so far have worked here every day and it is also the dream come true of two women: Valeria Zavadnikova, the young owner of the Fattoria, whose passion for wine has brought her to learn everything about it and transform this passion into a real job, and Ilaria Anichini, an agronomist and the director of the winery that has worked here since 2005.

It is not a coincidence that the image and logo of Montemaggio are represented by a young Etruscan woman with a basket of grapes on her head. The idea was to create an image - a brand, that would be able to bring together all the most important values that Montemaggio holds dear: tradition, history, passion, heritage, leadership  and value of women in our society. Etruscans, being such ancient people cultivated wines all those centuries ago and lived by this fundamental principles and gave a lot of importance and liberties to women in their society to be equally important standing next to man.

As for Montemaggio, a graphic designer Marina Zimoglyad took inspiration from the painting created for Montemaggio by her husband Andrey Remnev, who is a well-known and much appreciated Russian painter.
