Campomaccione 2008 - 87 points, Wine Enthusiast/ A confident wine that shows consistent scores throughout the years, Campomaccione is the kind of wine you can count on for its food pairing potential and good cheer. Morellino di Scansano is characterized by easy, bright berry nuances.
Campomaccione 2011 - 87 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Bright and lively, with cherry and blueberry nuances, this would pair well with pizzas or simple cheeseburgers. It delivers loads of fresh berry intensity and soft, smooth tannins.
Campomaccione 2007 - Critics Gold, 2010 Critics Challenge/ Heady aromas and full body on this big, tannic wine. It has marvelous acidity, and likely will be better in two to three years.
Best Buys/ A spicy and warm red with the richness of black raspberry and an undercurrent of licorice. For grilled sausages.
The late Italo Zingarelli, a highly-acclaimed Italian film producer best known for his classic spaghetti westerns, purchased Rocca delle Macie properties in Castellina in Chianti in 1973 and thus embarked 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 Macie has become one of Tuscany’s leading wine estates. This fine Morellino di Scansano comes from the prestigious Campomaccione estate in Tuscany’s Grosseto province. The 198-acre property was acquired by Rocca delle Macie in 1998; then, in 2003, the Zingarelli family extended its holdings in the area with the purchase of the 166-acre Casa Maria estate. Starting in the 1990s, the Morellino di Scansano DOCG has become the talk of growing numbers of wine critics and connoisseurs, who see in it enormous potential for a new style of world-class wines from Tuscany with their own distinct personality. Grape Varieties 90% Sangiovese (aka “morellino”), 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot Vinification Selected grapes are harvested at the peak of their ripeness and then vinified employing the most advanced technology available. The wine is ready for bottling in the spring immediately following the vintage. Because of the maturity of the grapes, this is an especially smooth wine that retains its depth of fruit over an extended period of time. Color Brilliant Ruby red Bouquet Intense aromas of ripe red fruits. Taste Smooth, full-bodied with a long lasting finish Alcohol 13% Serving Suggestions This versatile red wine is a splendid companion for spicier dishes, all types of grilled, roasted and barbecued red meats and hearty stews.
Morellino di Scansano 2006 - Top 5 Italian Brands, Wine & Spirits/ One of 45 global “standouts”, with more than 3,900 wines priced $18 or less and brands that repeatedly scored with recommendations for superior value at the price. Well-priced Tuscan reds from a winery founded by former boxer and film producer Italo Zingarelli. Standout: The savory 2006 Morellino di Scansano Campomaccione, a predominantly sangiovese blend bolstered with cabernet and merlot.
Campomaccione 2010 - 87 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Here’s a cheerful, bright Morellino di Scansano, with jammy fruit notes of blackberry and cherry. The quality of the fruit is plump and round, and the mouthfeel feels chewy and seemingly slightly sweet.
