Rocca delle Macie Tenuta Sant'Alfonso Chianti Classico 2019

Tuscany, ItalyRocca delle Macìe was founded in 1973 by legendary film producer Italo Zingarelli. His impressive film career allowed him to fulfill his dream of producing wine. His son, Sergio, oversees the operations today. This CC comes from Tenuta Sant'Alfonso, a 40-ha single vineyard site. This is rooted in clay soils at 300m, giving a weighted expansiveness to the palate. The wine rested in 35hl French barrels. Slightly brown in the glass, this is ripe and sultry with baked plums, worked leather and raspberry jam, pinned with firm, sticky tannins through a baking spiced finish—a wider, riper style for drinking now.Tasted: 14 July 2023Tasted by: Prices:
