Rocca delle Macie

Chianti Classico DOCG

What a great chianti. Easily cellared for 5-6 years.... oops...

But it tastes great now.

The winery is less than 30 years old and is producing great chianti in the Tuscan region, meeting the strict appellation standards for percentage of grapes, low yields, alcohol volume and aging.

Grapes: Sangiovese 90%; Canaiolo 5%; Merlot 5%.

LCBO # 741769 $17.95. Continuous availability at Vintages.

The reasonable price could be due to the fact the winery is striving to make a reputation for itself, so take advantage while you can!

Bottles sport the black rooster/cockerill trademark "Gallo Nero" that indicates a bottle of real Chianti wine.
