External Review by Morrell & Company:

Le Focaie 2006 Rocca di Montemassi Made of 100% Sangiovese, the color is an intense ruby red, with violet shadings. The nose is intense and full, the flavor offers pleasant scents of violets, cherries and wild berries. The palate has great structure and is pleasantly fresh and with a soft and persistent finish.

The wines producted at the Rocca di Montemassi estate are expressions of the area's landascape. history and traditions. The vineyards are in fact overlooked by an old fortified stronghold which probably dates back th the 10th century. This castle was initially owned by the Aldobrandeschis, and then by the noble Pannocchieschi family. It was then usurped by Cappuccini di Sticciano who, in 1328, rebelled against Siena with the help of Castruccio Castracani. The casle was, however, conquered by the more powerful Sienese troops after a siege that was immortalized in Simone Martini's famous painting, now in the Palazzo Pubblico di Siena. It depicts Guidoriccio da Fogliano on horseback, with the Casle of Montemassi and his troops' campsite - surrounded by vineyards. In 1632, Gran Duke Ferdinando II of Tuscany established the Marquisate of Montemassi and Roccatederighi and put it in the hands of the Malaspina di Mulazzo family, the title later passed to the Cambiaso di Genova and Bichi di Roccalbegna clans, and then to Marquis Bichi Rispoli until, in 1826, the Marquisate was finally dissolved.
