The highest expression of Rocca delle Macìe winemaking, the Gran Selezione Sergio Zingarelli has a history that stretches way back, since it is the fruit of many years' work in the vineyards on the Le Macìe estate at Castellina in Chianti, where the Sangiovese grape comes into its own like nowhere else. This wine encapsulates the very best of the Chianti Classico production zone and its vineyards, as well as the painstaking efforts of everyone involved. Rocca delle Macìe's Gran Selezione is part of a wider winemaking project that began more than 16 years ago with the replanting of almost all of the Sangiovese vineyards on the company's Le Macìe estate in Castellina in Chianti, with the long-term objective of producing a wine that could fully encapsulate the terroir and could take its place at the very top of the company's quality pyramid. With the “Chianti Classico Revolution” promoted by the Consortium, the fruit of this commitment has found its natural positioning within the new category.
Deep ruby red
Fruity, intense and with a long persistency and a touch of spices.
Warm and velvety with a very good balance.
