Orvieto Classico

External Review by Palm Bay International:

The late Italo Zingarelli, a highly-acclaimed Italian film producer best known for his classic spaghetti westerns, purchased the Le Macìe property in Castellina in Chianti in 1973 embarking on a career as one of Chianti Classico’s more unlikely wine producers. Thanks to his dedication and passion and that of his son Sergio, who now oversees the property, Rocca delle Macìe has become one of Italy’s leading wine estates. Defined by Italian poet Gabriele D’Annunzio as “Italian sunshine in a bottle,” Orvieto has been lauded by poets, artists, and other illustrious individuals since ancient times. Rocca delle Macie’s Orvieto Classico is produced using grapes harvested in the historic production zone. Production Area Umbria, Italy Grapes come from the estate of Caiano, situated in the heart of the Orvieto Classico area. Grape Varieties 50% Trebbiano Toscano, 20% Verdello, 20% Grechetto and Drupeggio, and 10% Malvasia Toscana Vinification Vinified using the most refined techniques for the production of quality white wine (soft pressing and temperature-controlled fermentation). The wine is then bottled after microfiltration in the cellar of Rocca delle Macìe before the end of the year. Color Pale straw with green reflections Bouquet Intense, fruity, very elegant Taste Dry and fresh, with a slight hint of almonds in the aftertaste Alcohol 12% Serving Suggestions Serve at a temperature of 50°-54°F. Ideal as an aperitif and well-suited to fish and white meat dishes.
