Monterosola is one of Tuscany’s finest contemporary wineries producing exceptional and award-winning wines that embody the magnificent character of the Volterra region. Resting on a hillside overlooking the medieval city of Volterra, the Monterosola estate combines the very best traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the art technology. Just 50km from the respected coastal region of Bolgheri and 30km from the worldfamous hills of Chianti, Monterosola sits perfectly in the middle of two of the best wine growing locations in the world. With approximately 25 hectares of vineyards producing both white and red wines, the estate also has olive groves, woodlands, valleys and pastures. In 2013 the estate was purchased by the Thomaeus family from Sweden who bought the farm and its accompanying land. At this point, the decision was made to transfer the farming practices to organic methods. Since 2013 the Thomaeus family and their dedicated team have worked to systematically create the very best wine growing conditions and have planted acre after acre of organic vineyard. The estate produces an impressive selection of award-winning red wines that are in demand world-wide. It also makes a smaller amount of excellent white wines. Production of both red and white wines at Monterosola is developing and will continue to grow. During 2019 Monterosola produced approximately 70,000 bottles and the aim is to increase that gradually to an annual production of 140,000. For over a decade, Monterosola’s wine production has been overseen by one of the world’s most experienced and respected oenologists Alberto Antonini. Alberto immediately recognised Monterosola’s true winemaking potential and was impressed with the unique characteristics of its terroir. ”Monterosola’s wines aren’t classically commercial, they are not simply winemaker’s wines. They are much more complex than that. These wines embody a ‘micro-terroir’ they deliver a real sense of place in a very pure and authentic way. We adhere to the concept that LESS IS MORE, but we are also aware that to do less you have to know more, gain greater experience and be closer to the soil, to the climate, and to the vines.
