Montecucco D.O.C. covers the territories of a number of municipalities in the province of Grosseto, including Cinigiano, Civitella Paganico, Campagnatico, Castel del Piano, Roccalbenga, Arcidosso and Seggiano.
This vicinity has had a positive effect on the development of winemaking traditions and techniques in the Montecucco area. In the past few years, the production techniques here have constantly improved thanks to the introduction of the Montecucco D.O.C. appellation. The result is a number of fine wines, especially reds.
The D.O.C. regulations here reflect the attitude of Montecucco winegrowers: they are very strict and put great weight on the use of traditional grape varieties and vinification methods, allowing no room for trendy experimentations and shortcuts of sorts.
