Rocca Delle Macie Orvieto Classico 2014

External Review:

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 Macìe has become one of Tuscany’s leading wine estates. The grapes come from the estate of Caiano, situated in the heart of the Orvieto Classico area. The grape varieties for this refreshing Orvieto are 50% Trebbiano, 20% Verdello, 20% Grechetto and Drupeggio, and 10% Malvasia Toscana. It was vinified using the most refined techniques for the production of quality white wine (soft pressing and temperature-controlled fermentation). A perfect match for seafood, it is Dry and fresh, with a slight hint of almonds in the aftertaste.
