Rocca delle Macie Roccato Toscana IGT 2009
Intense ruby red with garnet reflections.
Rich in bouquet and persistent, with hints of red berries and spices like cocoa, vanilla and coffee.
Warm and well-balanced, with a consistent structure of tannins and a long finish.
Left to mature in French oak barriques for between 9 and 14 months. Once the two varieties are blended, the wine is aged for 3 more months in 35hl barrels, followed by another year in the bottle.
Meeting all the criteria for successful long-term ageing, it pairs structured sauces, read meats, game dishes and dry cheeses.
READINESS FOR DRINKING
It can age well 15 years after the vintage.
