Roccato is Rocca delle Macìe’s historic supertuscan. Produced in its first vintage in 1988, it was conceived as an equal blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, as a wine to represent the winery’s know-how and the development of Tuscan hint with an international breath. It is a wine that over the past years has shown how strong the influence of the terroir can be in the adaptable cabernet sauvignon, which in its most successful expressions seems to be “chianteggi”, that is to say able to give back aromatically characters unmistakably Chiantigian, linked to the territory and not necessarily the vine. The baggage of this experience led to the decision of creating, starting from the 2015 vintage, a Roccato IGT Toscana that was a pure Cabernet Sauvignon, obtained from the single vineyard “Poggio alle Pecchie”, planted in 1996. The renovation project launched by the owner Sergio Zingarelli twenty years ago, focused on the strong territorial roots of the wines produced in Chianti Classico by Rocca delle Macìe, has now materialized in the achievement of the set goals. A mouth-filling, velvety wine that is rich in aromas of blackberry, plum and licorice, Roccato has a good mineral component and a tannic structure that is capable of supporting long-term aging.
