Rocca di Montemassi
Rocca di Montemassi is a 100% Tuscan and 100% sustainable "Wine Farm" that rises atthe foot of the ancient village of Montemassi, in Southern Tuscany, between theMediterranean coast and the Metalliferous hills. This sunny land, guarded by the Butteri(Maremma Cowherds), plunges into the blue of the sea, among the green of the vineyardsand the gold of the wheat, among Maremma cows and galloping horses.Sunlight, remarkable temperature ranges and diverse soils rich in mineral deposits, ironand clay have an extraordinary beneficial effect on these grapes that produce refinedwines of great character.
The estate is a clear example of a Tuscan farm: wine production is complemented by thecultivation of ancient varieties of grains, the care for an experimental vegetable gardenand a small orchard, and the raising of the prestigious Maremma cow, as well as the CintaSenese pig. The system promoted by Rocca di Montemassi is inspired by the concept ofpermaculture, aiming at the design, conscious and ethical conservation of a productiveecosystem that encompasses the diversity, stability and flexibility of natural ecosystems.
