The flagship wine of the zone from which it comes, and the maximum expression of that zone's particular features, the label proudly bears the Zingarelli name in order to highlight the strong link that the family has with the Chianti Classico area. 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes combine to create this ruby-red wine with its aroma of blackcurrant and marasca cherries, with notes of Peruvian pepper and sweet spices. Its equilibrium makes it a suitable accompaniment for a range of dishes, but it is also a great match for a good seasoned cheese.

Wine EnthusiastA blend of Sangiovese, with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this offers aromas of ripe blackberry, baking spice, toasted oak and a balsamic note. The round, savory palate offers black cherry, ground pepper, anise, espresso and tobacco alongside polished tannins.

Wine SpectatorBroad, generous and lightly oaked, with vanilla and a hint of chocolate gracing the black cherry, leather, almond and tobacco flavors. A firm grip lines the finish. Drink now through 2020. 29,200 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Famiglia Zingarelli is Sangiovese with small percentages of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon added to the blend. The 2012 vintage was a complicated one but the Zingarelli family sourced fruit from different sites to make this wine. They have also just completed a 35-hectare replanting effort. Dark berry fruit, spice and toasted almond give this wine a classic taste profile for Chianti Classico.
