Last Year's Vintage (2014)
Wine Spectator 90 Points
($26) Vanilla and toast from new oak add sweetness to this cherry- and berry-flavored red. Leather, earth and black tea notes linger on the finish. Fresh and smooth. Drink now through 2020.

James Suckling 90 Points
A very tight and silky red with firm tannins and acidity, giving the wine tension and brightness. Subtle berry and walnut character. Drink now.

Tasting Notes
Color: Intense ruby red with garnet reflections
Nose: Persistent aromas of ripe, red berries and plums
Palate: Well-balanced, with forward fruit, smooth tannins and a lengthy finish

Food Pairings
Enjoy with red meat dishes, hearty stews and game.

The Winery
When the late Italo Zingarelli, a former boxer and film producer, bought Rocca delle Macìe in Tuscany's Chianti Classico district back in 1973, he embarked on a new career as one of Tuscany's more unlikely wine producers.

It was certainly not intended to be a hobby... it was a vocation, a desire to return to the soil." Zingarelli, who passed away in the spring of 2000, was always quick to point out.

Working closely with his son Sergio, Zingarelli set about restoring the property that Sergio together with his wife Daniela, who plays an active role in the day-to-day management of the estate, and their two children now call home. Then a tumbled down 14th-century farmstead near the village of Castellina in Chianti, it was surrounded by acres of neglected vines. Vineyards were replanted from scratch; further property, was acquired, and a state-of-the-art cellar built and installed with the latest winemaking equipment. The Zingarellis left nothing to chance in their quest to create a stellar Tuscan wine estate.

Organic fertilization, careful pruning, the introduction of small oak barrels for aging and harvesting by hand are just some of the practices Sergio and his father instituted at the estate. Rocca is an active member of the Chianti Classico growers' consortium, which takes the black rooster as its symbol.
