Location and history
Rocca di Montemassi estate is a "milestone" in the history of Maremma.
It is a place where one can experience the rebirth of a rural, unspoilt and dynamic landscape; a place that cannot be compared to any other spot in the world.
The Etruscans were the ﬁrst to plant vines in our lands and our ties to the vines have not faded since. In fact, ours vines have been present from the times of the Romans to the Aldobrandeschi, from the Salinbeni to the Bichi and from the Malaspina to the modern times of the 18th century.
Rocca di Montemassi represents the heart of Maremma and its people: it is a land full of contrasts and wonders, where the Tuscan sun plays an integral role in the maturation of grapes and brightens the wine; where the sea breeze sweetens the harvest, and where the soil nourishes and warms the roots of the plants.
