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.

Clear and transparent, ruby red colour, consistent at sight. Flowery aromas, somewhat chemical notes. Very warm and acid enough at taste.

A succulent, supple well-structured palate with a silky smooth finish. Very nice. Can be serves with red meat, pasta, risotto, or as a reception wine alone.

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.

Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2009 - Wine Spectator / A flavorful yet refined Vernaccia, featuring Granny Smith apple, mineral and light clove character. Long and interesting.

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.

The late Italo Zingarelli, a highly-acclaimed Italian film producer best known for his classic spaghetti westerns, purchased Rocca delle Macìe 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. Rocca delle Macìe Vermentino di Toscana, “Occhio a Vento”(eye of the wind) is a local reference to the warm, dry Mediterranean sea breezes that influence the Casamaria vineyard in Maremma, source of this Vermentino, fostering the development of a distinctive freshness and minerality in the grapes. Production Area Grapes come exclusively from Rocca delle Macie’s 15-hectare Casamaria estate in Tuscany’s coastal Maremma region. Grape Varieties 100% Vermentino Vinification Select ripe grapes undergo cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine is left to rest on its lees for 2-3 months before bottling to enhance aromatic complexity. Color Pale straw gold with light green reflections Bouquet Aromatic and refreshing, with notes of fresh citrus fruit and wild herbs Taste Flavors of ripe peach and lemon sorbet are accented by intriguing notes of wild herbs, concluding in a lingering finish Alcohol 13% Serving Suggestions This versatile red wine is a splendid companion for spicier dishes, all types of grilled, roasted and barbecued red meats and hearty stews.

/ This nutty white has lemon-pith flavors with enough zest and freshness for pan-fried trout.

Occhio a Vento 2007 - The New York Times/ Light and crisp with aromas of flowers, lemon and herbs. Vermentino has much to offer, whether as a crisp, tangy accompaniment to seafood – fritto misto would be ideal – or as a richer, more complex wine with a distinctively oily sort of texture.

The late Italo Zingarelli, a former boxer and producer of spaghetti westerns, purchased Rocca delle Macie in 1973 and thus embarked on a career as one of Chianti Classico’s more unlikely wine producers. Thanks to his dedication and that of his son Sergio who now oversees the property, Rocca delle Macie has become a stellar Tuscan wine estate, employing organic fertilization, careful pruning, small oak barriques for aging, and harvesting by hand. Production Area This grappa comes exclusively from estate-grown grapes used in the production of Rocca delle Macie Rubizzo wine. Grape Varieties 95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot. Vinification At the end of October, selected pomace is transported immediately after extraction to Rocca delle Macie’s cellar at the Bonollo distillery in the commune of Greve in Chianti. Distillation takes place the following day in stills made entirely from copper, with rectification conducted in a bain-marie vacuum still to infuse the most genuine aromas of the pomace into the grappa. The grappa is then refined for eight months prior to bottling and release. Color Crystalline, both in hue and clarity. Bouquet Intense vinous notes with a pleasant fruit scent. Taste Warm, persistent and full-bodied with a fine aftertaste. Alcohol 42% Serving Suggestions Serve slightly chilled in small, tulip-shaped crystal. Excellent at the conclusion of a meal.
