Producer Description

When the late Italo Zingarelli, a successful film producer best known for his popular spaghetti westerns, bought Rocca delle Macece (pronounced ROH-kah DELL-eh mah-CHEE-ah) in Tuscany's Chianti Classico district back in 1973, he embarked on a new career as one of Tuscany's more unlikely wine producers.Working closely with his son Sergio, Zingarelli set about restoring the property that Sergio together with his wife Daniela, and their two children now call home. Then a tumbled down 14th-century farmstead near the village of Castellina in Chianti, it was surrounded by acres of neglected vines. Vineyards were replanted from scratch; further property, the nearby Sant'Alfonso estate, was acquired, and a state-of-the-art cellar built and installed with the latest winemaking equipment. The Zingarellis left nothing to chance in their quest to create a stellar Tuscan wine estate.Quality is a priority at Rocca delle Macece. Organic fertilization, careful pruning, the introduction of small oak barriques for aging, and harvesting by hand are just some of the practices Sergio and his father instituted at the estate.. Rocca delle Macie is an active member of the Chianti Classico growers' consortium, which takes the black rooster as its symbol.By 1978, Rocca delle Macece had become one of the best-selling Chianti Classicos in Italy and began to export its wines. Today Rocca delle Macece wines are available in 41 countries worldwide.

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
