Famiglia Zingarelli Rocca delle Macìe Chianti Classico 2020

Tuscany, ItalyRocca delle Macìe was founded in 1973 by legendary film producer Italo Zingarelli. His impressive film career allowed him to fulfill his dream to produce wine. His son, Sergio, oversees the operations today. This sangiovese is tipped with 5% merlot sourced from their 4 estates in Castellina in Chianti. After primary fermentation in stainless, and MLF in concrete, this rested in large Slavonian oak for 6-10 months. Ripe and cushy up front, with sun dried cherries, crushed florals, worked leather, dried mint, fresh parsley across a fleshy palate, with bitter cherry tannins drying up the kirsch stained finish. A forward, drinking-now style, ideally with richer tomato sauced pastas.Tasted: 30 June 2023Tasted by: Prices:
