Agricola Montechiaro

The Grigia Griccioli family dates back to 1345 and has worked the lands (terre) for centuries. Hence Terre della Grigia. In the current Montechiaro estate was developed and what you see today- vineyards and villas with an expansive view of Siena and countryside. Most importantly, the lands produce rich, fruitful grapes that are proucing an assortment of wonderful wines orchestrated by the talented winemaker and owner, Alessandro Griccioli. 

Careful attention to detail permeates all their wines (and fabulous olive oil) producing a range of wines from sangiovese grapes: Chianti, Rosé, and a delectable Chianti Reserva. However, not to be missed is the artful and unique white wine - Arteliquida - a blend of Viognier and Malvasia. The estate warmly welcomes visitors and also has a retail shop inside the 13th century Monteriggione Castle. (not to be missed!) It's open all year round and absolutely worth a visit.

We love Montechiaro wines because they are so talented at blending. This is no simple Chianti. A blend of 70% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo, 5% Colorino, 5% Malvasia Nera, 5% Foglia Tonda, and 5% Barsaglina in what they call "an intimate expression of the territory". This is your everyday drinking Chianti - at this price a great value for the quality and taste.

The Tenuta di Montechiaro, in the heart of Tuscany, overlooks the ancient town of Siena. The estate has been producing olives since the year 1760. Today, after fifteen generations, 2000 olive trees grow at Montechiaro; the most profused variety is the Coreggiolo, which renders a very sweet, creamy and buttery olive oil. Other varieties include Leccino, Felciaio and Moraiolo which lend the balance that creates the full-bodied flavor of the best Tuscan extra virgin olive oils. These olives are harvested by hand between the months of November and December when they are still slighly inder-ripe. The olives are immediately pressed in a modern "Frantoio" (olive mill).

Some parts of the USA can be very hot during the summer - and they seem to be getting HOTTER.  A good idea to protect your fragile shipment is to add an ice pack to keep your wine cooler.
We insert the ice pack into your styrofoam shipping carton to add 48 hours of cooling. Although air shipping is the best solution, if the journey to your home from the East Coast is not too long, an ice pack can help.

If you think great rosés only come from France, think again. This rosé always gets great reviews - for its taste of fresh cherries, raspberry and strawberry rolled into one. Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes, this rosé always stands out.
