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.

Winemaking & Aging

Grapes are hand selected from the Le Macie estate in Castellina in Chianti. After alcoholic fermentation & malolactic fermentation in concrete vats, the wine is aged 18 months in French barriques (50% new oak), followed by at least 20 months in bottle.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red with garnet reflections A rich, persistent bouquet with hints of red berries & spices like cocoa, vanilla and coffee Warm & well-balanced, with consistent tannins that support a long finish

94
Points

Very nicely done on the nose with a wealth of brambleberries, dark cherries, mocha, dark chocolate, licorice and bay leaf. Full-bodied and really delicious, carrying layers of dark fruit through succulent and polished tannins. Drink from 2021.
