Background

For well over 50 years, the Zingarelli family has dedicated themselves to crafting the finest wines, providing meticulous attention to the vineyards and championing Chianti Classico DOC. Established in 1973 by acclaimed Italian film producer Italo Zingarelli, Rocca delle Macìe totals 600 hectares (1,500 acres) across six estates in Tuscany. Led today by Italo's son Sergio, his wife Daniela and two children, Rocca delle Macìe is one of Tuscany's leading wine estates. Riserva di Fizzano is classified Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, the top tier of Chianti Classico wines in terms of production and aging parameters. To be classified Gran Selezione, grapes must be estate-grown and estate-bottled and the wine must be aged a minimum of 30 months. Rocca delle Macìe is one of the few wineries in Tuscany to put a Gran Selezione at the very top of their quality pyramid, versus an IGT / Super Tuscan selection. The winery is a strong advocate for the terroir of Chianti Classico and the Sangiovese grape. Sergio, a two-time president of the Chianti Classico Growers Consortium, continues to be one of the DOCG's strongest proponents.

Winemaking & Aging

After fermentation the majority of the wine matures in 35hl French oak barrels, with a small amount aging in 225-liter barriques. After the blending, the wine rests in the bottle for one year.

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby red Intense with hints of wild berries and well-balanced spice Warm with ripe red fruit aromas and a long finish

Points

Fresh and vivid with black-cherry and violet aromas. Full-bodied with firm, lively tannins and a fresh, linear finish. Very fine and polished. Drink or hold.

James Suckling - June 2021

93
Points

Savory and fruity combine in this dense red, whose wild rosemary, eucalyptus and woodsy notes meet cherry, plum and floral flavors. Firms up, so decant now or cellar a few more years. Best from 2024 through 2038. —B.S.
