Located at an altitude of 500 metres, it is the largest unit, with 12 hectares divided into 7 parcels of Cabernet Franc, 4 of co-planted Bianco and one of Merlot, producing the grapes used for Ampeleia, the monovarietal Cabernet Franc, Empatia and a part of our Bianco.
The vineyards have south/south-east exposure and are ventilated all year round. La Rocca is a natural amphitheatre, which takes its name from the spur of rock above it on the left, on which Roccatederighi was built.
The soils are a mixture of schist, palombini limestone and clay.
The view stretches to the sea, to the Island of Giglio and, on clear days, as far as Elba and even Corsica. The microclimate differs from the other vineyards in that it is more continental, cooler with significant temperature variations between night and day. Even on summer evenings a t-shirt rarely suffices and snow often falls in winter.
This is also reflected in the vegetation, where the woods surrounding “La Rocca” are holm oak, oak and chestnut.
