External Reviews for Rocca Delle Mace Chianti Classico Riserva
Aromas of dark fruits, with hints of basil, lead to toasty oak, green coffee bean and berry flavors. Full-bodied and refined, with silky tannins. Best from 2010 through 2015.
The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva is a big, super-ripe wine loaded with black cherries, blueberries, French oak and spices. Stylistically, this is a concentrated, voluminous Riserva with terrific persistence and balance. It is one of the finest wines I have tasted here in some time. The Riserva spent 24 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity; 2012-2018.
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.
Deep garnet in color, with sour cherry, plum, earthy spice and leather aromatics and flavors. This will pair as well with a medium-rare steak as it will with traditional meat-based Italian dishes.
Slightly stewed character on the nose and palate leads to a medium body, with round tannins and a medium, fruity finish. Slightly rustic, but juicy. Drink now.
This is full and rich, with lots of mineral, berry and vanilla character. Round, silky, long and satisfying. Drink now.
Shows lots of good fruit for a straightforward Chianti, as well as berry and milk chocolate character. Medium-bodied, with a fresh finish. Drink now.
