We will enjoy a “trust the chef” style Italian feast, working our way through the estate wines before unleashing the “Main Gauche” a world exclusive 3 vintage vertical tasting of Rocca di Montemassi. Frederico is an infectious character who previously made wine at French First Growth Chateau Haut Brion and his commentary on the wines will inspire in true Italian style.

Wines of the evening

Rocca di Montemassi Le Focaie Sangiovese 2013
This exotic and succulent medium bodied red crafted from 100% Sangiovese will provide a superb welcome to the evening.

Rocca di Montemassi Sassabruna 2013
80% Sangiovese blended with equal parts Merlot and Syrah.
Full bodied yet exceptionally stylish.

Tenuta Rocca di Montemassi vertical tasting 2010/2012/2013

Tenuta Rocca Di Montemassi is a Super Tuscan blend of traditional Bordeaux varieties planted at the coastal region of Maremma in Toscana. Very much the “new kid” on the block, the vineyard is only 15 years old yet impressively the wine, shares the same Gambero Rosso “Tre Bicchieri” rating of other big name Super Tuscan’s at 3 – 5 times Rocca’s modest price. With a tiny 1200 six packs produced, the wine is strictly allocated around the world… only 50 x 6 for NZ.
