Film producer Italo Zingarelli established Rocca delle macie in 1973 to realize a lifelong dream. Since then he has continued to expand and improve the estate and produce consistently quality wines. This Riserva bears the family name as their commitment to making the best wine possible. The Wine Advocate scored this 2006 90 points and said "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."
