Rocca delle Macìe Roccato Toscana IGT

1988 saw the unveiling of the first bottle of Roccato.
This wine, conceived and willed into being by Italo and Sergio and based on equal parts of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, represents the essence of the path undertaken by the winery itself. Indeed, like Rocca delle Macìe, which started out from the tradition of Chianti Classico and has since opened up to innovation without ever forgetting its origins, Roccato represents the encounter of the most typical roots of Sangiovese with the modernity symbolized by Cabernet and by the barriques used for the aging process. 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.
