Rocca delle Macìe was founded in 1973 when Italo Zingarelli bought the historic Le Macìe vineyard in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone. Today Italo’s son Sergio, his wife Daniela, and their two children take care of the family winery. For 20+ years, they have made this rich, velvety wine, Roccato, of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. Positively delicious, mouth-filling and round with plum, blackberry, mineral and licorice, Roccato is aged for 15 months in French oak. Serve with steak, lamb, short ribs and pasta.

Wine AdvocateThe estate’s top wine, the 2010 Roccato is a 50-50 expression of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon that opens with a dark ruby-garnet color and a pretty aromatic display that spans from dried berry and cassis to exotic spice and dried garden herb. This is without a doubt Rocca delle Macie’s most complete and complex wine and the encouraging results of the 2010 vintage are on full display here. The bouquet is especially buoyant and bright. In the mouth, however, the wine offers density, firmness and menthol-laced freshness. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023. 90+
