Sommelier Wine

The flagship wine of the zone from which it comes, and the maximum expression of that zone’s particular features, the label proudly bears the Zingarelli name in order to highlight the strong link that the family has with the Chianti Classico area.

It is the result of the selection of the best grapes from the four estates of Rocca delle Macìe in the area of Castellina in Chianti, the blend of the different Rocca delle Macìe “terroirs”. 90% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Colorino (from vintage 2015) grapes combine to create this ruby-red wine with its aroma of blackcurrant and marasca cherries, with notes of Peruvian pepper and sweet spices. Its equilibrium makes it a suitable accompaniment for a range of dishes, but it is also a great match for a good seasoned cheese.

Production Technique
Following careful selection, the grapes are vinified according to traditional Chianti Classico methods. The wine ages in French oak barrels for two years and is then
refined further in the bottle, for a minimum of three months.

Wine description
Color: ruby red, becoming garnet with age.
Bouquet: ample, intense and refined, with excellent variety of aromas.
Taste: warm, robust, elegant with a persistent aroma.

Winemaker’s recommendations
The bottle should be uncorked as early as an hour before serving or decanted for a few minutes before being drunk. This wine is particularly suited for red meats, roasts, wild-game and dry cheeses.

Serve at 16/18°C.
