External Reviews for Rocca Delle Mace Chianti Classico Riserva
Very powerful and complex, at least 80% Sangiovese - but unbeknownst to most Chianti drinkers, blended with some white grapes, which adds to the softness and fruitiness. Blackberry and cherry, truffles and earth aromas are not overwhelmed by its impressive leathery finish. Fantastic served with mortadella and provolone cheeses.
Cherries, blueberries and sweet Christmas spice characterize this Riserva and help fill out its dense, dark extraction. The wine has a very smooth, almost sweet-tasting element and offers chewy juicy tannins with lingering berry flavors. Made with small percentages of Merlot and Cabernet to lift the Sangiovese.
Attractive aromas of dried cherries and leather. Medium-bodied, with fresh fruit, light tannins and a fresh finish. Delicious. Drink now.
Solid Chianti Classico. Shows off pleasant red cherry and delicate hints of cedar on a medium frame.
High-toned scents of jasmine and anise ground some of the pleasing volatility of this wine. Its light strawberry and potent gamey flavors will serve well with boar.
Here is a popular winery that just keeps on producing attractive, well-priced wines. This Riserva 1998 manages to combine soft, quaffable fruit with generous, almost opulent richness. There's something brooding about the firm tannins and tarry flavors, but the fruit is just deliciously ripe.
This Riserva expression of Chianti Classico reveals ripe richness and plush layers of blackberry, cherry, spice, leather and tobacco. Smooth tannins and a compact texture would match white meat or pork.
