Reviews and Ratings

Rocca delle Macìe Famiglia Zingarelli Riserva 2017 is a Chianti Classico, silky on the palate with bright cherry, spiced plum and meaty flavours finishing with juicy balanced acidity. This is a full-bodied Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, aged in French oak barrels for 24 months. Enjoy with spaghetti and meatballs. - Community Wine Reviews
