This wine was born along with the winery, and has grown with it over the years, becoming the ambassador that represents it around the world. As such, it deserves more space than can be allocated to it in this brief description. The history of Rocca delle Macìe is, in actual fact, doubly intertwined with this Chianti Classico, which has evolved over the years both through the changes imposed upon it by updates to the regulations and through the enhancements made in the vineyards thanks to replanting operations, soil analysis and the clonal selection of Sangiovese. Today, we have arrived at a lively, ruby-red wine that expresses character, freshness and terroir, and is laden with aromas of cherry and violet.
Very good, deep flavour colour and aroma. It was given to us, so imported. Manly Sangiovese with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot aged in French Allier barrels for 24 months.
Very smooth and just right of dryness. At Samaras. A friend gave it her to.
Great chianti. Balanced, full flavor. The 2010 is a winner.
Great wine with family at Nicholinos.
Bold flavor, spicy ish.
