96pts, Vinous
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.

The consistent, undeniable praise of the impeccable 2015 vintage in Tuscany knows no bounds. It truly was a marvelous year and now with 5 years of age, the wines are just starting to show off their immense aging potential and current drinkability. For those of you who love Super Tuscans and Bordeaux blends in general, this wine is a MUST (and we’ll drop the hint again that if Dad likes these styles of wines, grab him a bottle or two for Father’s Day). Don’t just take our word for it. Check out the 96pt (!!!) praise from Galloni:

The wine is named after the founding family’s ancestor, Geremia, who founded the Rocca di Montegrossi estate in the 7th century (yep, we’re talking crazy history here!!). Several generations later, his descendent, Baron Bettino Ricasoli, would develop the “formula” for Chianti Classico’s blend of grapes in 1872. Today, Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi manages the 100 hectare estate with vines planted between 1050-1500 feet, and is leading the charge in establishing the winery as one of the most esteemed producers in Chianti.

Ok, so you got super cool history, 96pts, the vineyards are certified organic and you have a stellar vintage (btw, they only make this wine in excellent vintages). How does it get better than this?! OH, it’s under $40 and 35% off retail. 🤯

Supple, lush, elegant, powerful, this wine packs the punch in epic style. Notes of sweet and sour cherries, currants, wild bramble and plums blend with hints of licorice, mint, warm spice and vanilla that lead to a plush, velvety, eyesrolling back into your head finish. In a word, superb.

THE STORY TO KNOW

The history of the Ricasoli-Firidolfi family in Tuscany is a rich tapestry of kings and statesmen, its fabric woven together with the vine. For more than 37 generations, this ancient family has cultivated grapes and crafted wines in Monti in Chianti, the “very best area” of Chianti Classico, according to Antonio Galloni.

The family’s roots in Tuscany began with a man named Geremia back in 1141, when the name “Chianti” had yet to be spoken and Tuscany was the scene of many a battle between warring families. The “rocca” of Montegrossi was a strategic post, high up on a plateau, providing shelter for traveling dignitaries.

For centuries the family guarded the “rocca” and cultivated vines on its sunny slopes. Yet it was in the nineteenth century when Baron Bettino Ricasoli—the “Iron Baron” and future prime minister of a united Italy—created the original “formula” for Chianti Classico’s blend of grapes.

The “Iron Baron” was winemaker Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi’s great-great-great grandfather. Today on the very same land where his forefathers grew grapes, Marco crafts peerless Chianti Classico wines according to the traditions and wisdom of countless generations.

Geremia is named for the ancestor of the Ricasoli family who founded Rocca di Montegrossi in the 7th century. His descendent would eventually codify the recipe for Chianti. Thus, Geremia is a wine with ancient roots and modern flavor. Made from Merlot and Cab, only in great vintages, this wine boasts intense aromas of sour cherry, orange peel, anise and a touch of vanilla. History never tasted so good.
