Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2011 - 85 points & Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast/ This is the kind of easy Italian white that would taste delicious at an outdoor barbecue or on a hot afternoon. The wine is light, lean and loaded with fresh citrus flavors.
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 Macie has become one of Tuscany’s leading wine estates. Production Area Produced with carefully selected grapes from the restricted zone of cultivation for Vernaccia vineyards, in the area of San Gimignano, province of Siena. Grape Varieties 100% Vernaccia grapes Vinification Fermentation and vinification occur in cellars in the production area using the most up-to-date techniques. Fermentation takes place at low, controlled temperatures and the wine is then bottled after a microfiltration in the Rocca delle Macìe cellar. Color Pale with characteristic gold reflections. Bouquet Persistent, fruity, and rich. Taste Dry, fresh, with a persistent aftertaste Alcohol 12% Serving Suggestions At its best with fish and light meat dishes; excellent on its own and as an aperitif. Serve slightly chilled.
