Rocca delle Macie Chianti Classico Riserva 2010
|Brand||Rocca delle Macie|
Wine EnthusiastFrom a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot comes this earthy wine with aromas of underbrush, tobacco, leather and meat juices. The palate offers juicy black cherry and plum layered with chocolate and coffee alongside somewhat astringent tannins.
Wine SpectatorThis dense red shows cherry, blackberry, tobacco and tea flavors. The tannins are dusty, and the finish firm. Drink now through 2018.
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Famiglia Zingarelli opens with a dark ruby hue and clean berry notes of raspberry and cherry. Sangiovese is blended with 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot respectively. It's a mild mannered wine with enough fruit integrity and savory spice to keep it going a few more years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.
