The Rocca delle Macie Chianti Classico is a blend of 90% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot and 5% Canaiolo. Organic fertilization, careful pruning, and harvesting by hand are just some of the practices the winemakers have instituted at their vineyard. The wine is garnet in color and well-balanced with ripe berry fruit flavors. It is medium bodied with lively tannins. This can be served with a wide range of entrées including beef, chicken and pasta with tomato sauces.
This textbook Chianti is medium weight and shows good fruit. Classically styled, the tart-cherry and chocolate elements are supported by good acidity and not overwhelmed by oak. Firm tannins on the dusty cocoa finish round out this solid 1998.
You who've turned your backs on the notion of vintage variation, lulled into complacency by Californian luck, Australian regularity, Chilean reliability - WAKE UP! Taste what a difference a date makes. The 1997 harvest was the best in years for nearly all of Italy, but nowhere are the wines more impressive than in Tuscany. This excellent Chianti exceeds the quality of a Riserva from a typical year, with a dense and luscious texture full of cherry, mulberry, and plum flavors, hints of anise, cinnamon, and clove, and long and velvety finish. Admirable for its concentration and balance.
The 2007 Chianti Classico reveals plenty of density in its smokiness, red cherries and tobacco. All of the elements come together nicely in this mid-weight Chianti Classico. The finish is round, harmonious and inviting. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013.
Deliciously fruity, just brimming with wonderfully strawberry and cherry flavors. Light to medium bodied, with bright, lively acidity.
