Rocca delle Macie Chianti Classico Riserva

$25.34

Rocca delle Macìe was established in 1973 by Italo Zingarelli, a film producer. He purchased the 93 hectare “Le Macìe” estate in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone. Today the Zingarelli family own 500 hectares of land spread across 6 estates, 4 of which are in the area of Castellina in Chianti. The two other estates are located in Maremma. Management of the business is overseen by Sergio Zingarelli.

The Rocca delle Macìe Chianti Classico Riserva is made from a cuvée of 90% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Colorino harvested from vineyards in the area of Castellina in Chianti. As is the requirement for Riserva level wines, it was aged 2 years in French oak barrels.

Chianti Classico is quintessentially Italian in its character, and perfectly mirrors Tuscany’s distinct cuisine. Ruby red in colour with a tinge of garnet, the nose has mediterranean aromas of morello cherries, dried herbs, balsamic, and ground espresso. The palate is medium bodied with coarse tannins and prominent acidity. The finish is tart with a hint of black olive bitterness.
