Rocca delle Macie Tenuta Sant'Alfonso Chianti Classico 2019

Tuscany, ItalyRocca delle Macìe was founded in 1973 by legendary film producer Italo Zingarelli. Still, it's having a moment in its 60th year under the watchful eye of Italo's son Sergio whom, when he wasn't busy organizing the Chianti Classico Consortium, was overhauling the family wines in a big way. Today this weighty, full flavoured red of broad, soft textures is a statement for inexpensive Chianti Classico. Plenty of red plums and black cherries come together with savoury leather. Tenuta Sant'Alfonso is a 40 ha single vineyard that provides all you want at this price point. The match is spaghetti Bolognese.Tasted: 30 June 2023Tasted by: Prices:
