The Rocca delle Macìe 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Gioveto is a single-vineyard expression of Sangiovese that is dark and concentrated. This features a core of cherry flavors allied to leather, iron, sandalwood and tobacco notes. Shows a touch of sweetness midpalate, backed by a muscular structure and a long finish.

"I appreciate the aromas of forest flowers, cedar and plums that follow through to a full body with round, chewy tannins and a structured finish. Extremely well done. Still very youthful. Try after 2021."

Rocca delle Macìe was established in 1973, when Italo Zingarelli – producer of Ettore Scola’s “We All Loved Each Other So Much”, and also of the wildly popular series of films featuring comedy duo Bud Spencer and Terence Hill (including “They Call Me Trinity” and “Trinity Is Still My Name”) – decided to realize his lifelong dream by acquiring the “Le Macìe” estate – extending across 93 hectares (230 acres) in all, of which only two were under vine – in order to create a winery in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone.
The company estate now extends to more than 500 hectares (1250 acres) with, in total, more than 200 (500 acres) used as vineyards and 22 (54 acres) as olive groves, subdivided across the company’s six estates: Le Macìe, Sant’Alfonso, Fizzano e le Tavolelle in the Chianti Classico Area, in addition to the Campomaccione and Casa Maria estates in the Morellino di Scansano Area (Maremma).
