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.
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.
