Tasting Notes

"A specifically clonal wine to fit the soils of the place from 100 per cent sangiovese for a pure, single-vineyard expression. Sant’Alfonso is one of two estate crus and the rich clay, less gravel soils make for a Santenay-like Chianti Classico. The clays have cooled the wine, somehow, with miraculous acumen and left us with a richness that belies temptations; not overripe, not to warm and really very succulent. Such a well managed ’17. Drink 2020-2025."

The Producer

Rocca delle Macie

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).
