Rocca delle Macie Chianti Classico 2014
|Brand||Rocca delle Macie|
Wine EnthusiastThis bright, straightforward red offers aromas of wild berry, coffee and a whiff of tilled soil. On the soft, easy-drinking palate, notes of chopped sage and baking spice add interest to the red cherry core.
Wine SpectatorEarthy and chewy, with grainy tannins matched to modest cherry and berry fruit. Bright and will pair well with tomato-based dishes. Drink now through 2018. 87,500 cases made.
Wine AdvocateSangiovese is blended with a tiny part Merlot (just 5%) to produce the no-fuss 2014 Chianti Classico. This is a bright and easy-going Tuscan red with lean consistency and a watery finish. It imparts cherry, blueberry and grilled herb along the way. Bright acidity seals the deal.
