Professional Wine Reviews for Rocca Delle Macie Chianti Classico Tenuta Santalfonso 2016

Rated 93 by James Suckling
A fresh and fruity wine with blueberries, chocolate and hazelnuts that follow through to a medium-to full-bodied palate with medium tannins and a clean finish. There are hints of vanilla at the end, suggesting a year or two of bottle age will make this even better. But why wait? Drink now.
Rated 91 by Wine Spectator
A modern style, driven by cherry and berry fruit, vanilla and milk chocolate flavors. Firm and tightening up, with plenty of grip and leafy elements on the back end. Best from 2022 through 2033. 3,750 cases made.

Winery Rocca Delle Macie

Region: Tuscany

The central Italian region of Tuscany is widely understood to be one of the world's most famous and highly regarded wine regions. The beautiful rolling hillsides and medieval towns and castles which are a key feature of the area are also home to many of Europe's finest wineries, and extremely high quality vineyards growing the distinctive Sangiovese and Vernaccia grape varietals which are the flavorful backbone of Tuscany's wonderful red and white wines. For almost three thousand years, this region has been recognized as an ideal home for wine production on a large scale, and the ancient Etruscans, Greeks and Romans all noticed that fine grape varietals flourished on the unique soils and under the hot sunshine which typifies the area. Today, Tuscany is home to a wide range of wines, from the traditional to the complex, but all dedicated to excellent flavors and aromas, and maintaining the region's international reputation.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
