Interpreting the Earth
What We Do Best
Montefili wines are a pure expression of vine, site, and ethos. There is no recipe, and that’s what’s important – as shepherds of nature, we listen to our land and bear witness to what it wishes to express.
Sangiovese is in our blood. Our hilltop vineyards at 1,500 feet are the heart of Chianti Classico: a terroir and micro-climate with plentiful sunlight and refined galestro and alberese marl soils. Our future-facing sustainable approach is a bold path of confidence and patience. We only put on the vines what we’d want in our glass.
Montefili wines are the wines we want to pour at dinner, to gift to our loved ones, and to explain to a stranger a little of what’s in our hearts.
A Thesis on Sangiovese
These three Chianti Classicos from 100% Sangiovese demonstrate the boundless idiosyncrasies of every corner of our vineyards. Each plot of land finds its true expression through the grapes harvested there, and we work delicately in the cantina to preserve a true sense of place.
We produce a Chianti Classico, a Gran Selezione, and a single-vineyard Gran Selezione that, despite being siblings, each have unique, inimitable qualities that sing out across our land.

Cult Wines from Old Vines
Bruno di Rocca and Anfiteatro are bold, pure Super Tuscans from vineyards almost 50 years old. Bottled in very small quantities, to drink these wines is to uncover the very soul of these ancient lands.
Anfiteatro is the ultimate expression of Sangiovese – this is our poetry, our very reason for being. A moment-defining wine for lengthy rumination.
Bruno di Rocca is a rich Cabernet Sauvignon, elevated by a percentage of Sangiovese. A powerful companion with layers of nuance to unwrap.
