Rocca Delle Macìe Chianti Classico 2010
Tasted on: Wednesday, August 17th, 2011 Color: Red (dark cherry) Nose: Intense with notes of wildberries. Has a soft, almost feminine quality to it. Taste: Sour cherry, loads of acidity. Tannins are present but subdued. Finish is somewhat sour. Summary: A medium-to-full bodied red with a pleasing nose. Not overly complex. Tons of acidity suit it to consumption with food. Was better for sipping on the second day. Would definitely buy again.
External Reviews for Rocca Delle Macìe Chianti Classico
Always a favorite, the Rocca delle Macìe is bright and vibrant, featuring cranberry and currant, and faint notes of cinnamon and cedar. Perfect with just about any classic Italian dish, especially baked ziti or pizza.
Bright red. Straightforward aromas and flavors of pomegranate, red cherry and flint. Bright and fresh in the mouth, offering modest complexity but easy drinkability. Finishes clean and bright, with moderate persistence.
The 2010 Chianti Classico is juicy, fleshy and delicious. Succulent red cherries, licorice, tobacco and leather are some of the notes that flow from this rich, deep Chianti Classico. This is a terrific effort from Rocca delle Macie, and a great value as well. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2016.
