Rocca delle Macie Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Tenuta Fizzano 2019
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Rocca delle Macie|
The nose on this single-vineyard wine is savory up front but fruit sneaks in from behind. Gunpowder, slate and tar roll into cherries, herbs, dark chocolate and coffee. Fresh Bing cherries, pomegranates and cranberries come out on the palate, alongside more dark chocolate, coffee and bitter cocoa, embraced by muscular but not aggressive tannins.
A fluid red, featuring a mix of plum, cherry, leather, iron and sanguine flavors. Tips to the dry side in the balance, remaining long and savory in the end. Sangiovese and Colorino. Best from 2024 through 2038. 2,000 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.
