Winemaker Notes

The color is ruby red tending towards garnet. The aroma is Rich, intense and complex, while on the palate the wine is dry, soft, gently tannic with good structure.

Uncork at least an hour beforehand, then decant shortly before serving. This wine is particularly well suited to dishes of red meat, roasts and game.

James Suckling
Lots of rich and ripe fruit here, with fresh plum that turns to prune with chocolate undertones. Full and velvety.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Sangiovese is enhanced with tiny percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to create a fresh, balanced wine, with aromas of red fruit and savory spice. The mouthfeel is soft and rich with good structure and fullness.

Rocca delle Macie
When the late Italo Zingarelli, a former boxer and film producer, bought Rocca delle Macìe in Tuscany's Chianti Classico district back in 1973, he embarked on a new career as one of Tuscany's more unlikely wine producers.

It was certainly not intended to be a hobby... it was a vocation, a desire to return to the soil." Zingarelli, who passed away in the spring of 2000, was always quick to point out.

Working closely with his son Sergio, Zingarelli set about restoring the property that Sergio together with his wife Daniela, who plays an active role in the day-to-day management of the estate, and their two children now call home. Then a tumbled down 14th-century farmstead near the village of Castellina in Chianti, it was surrounded by acres of neglected vines. Vineyards were replanted from scratch; further property, was acquired, and a state-of-the-art cellar built and installed with the latest winemaking equipment. The Zingarellis left nothing to chance in their quest to create a stellar Tuscan wine estate.

Organic fertilization, careful pruning, the introduction of small oak barrels for aging and harvesting by hand are just some of the practices Sergio and his father instituted at the estate. Rocca is an active member of the Chianti Classico growers' consortium, which takes the black rooster as its symbol.
