2014 Rocca delle Macìe Sergio Zingarelli Chianti Classico Gran Selezione


Produced from grapes grown in one of the Zingarelli family’s most prized vineyard comprised of 35 hectares of land rich in limestone and sand. Elegant and complex, but still pleasantly approachable, Riserva di Fizzano Gran Selezione is majority Sangiovese with a touch of Merlot, and a truly wonderful representation of the Zingarelli family’s passion for winemaking at Rocca delle Macìe.

Chianti Classico

Tuscany's beloved Chianti Classico region is best known for expressive wines made predominantly from Sangiovese. The region is graced with families making wine at a high level, with distinction based on house style and a diversity of soils. Three primary soils dominate: galestro, albarese, and clay are the tour de force of the region. The clay soils yield wines that are plush, pretty, elegant, and maybe see a little oak. The wines from galestro soils tend to be dark and earthy, yet elegant. The pure albarese soils create wines that can be powerful, brooding, earthy, and long-lived. Fruit from different soils are often blended to bring a unique spectrum of results. In terms of styles, Chianti Classico is aromatically complex and easy to enjoy. For more power and individuality, choose a Chianti Classico Riserva, which by law ages longer and typically has more oak influence. For highly individual expressions, seek out wines with the relatively new Gran Selezione indication on the label; these are special designated estate wines that represent the cream of the crop...literally.
