This beautiful Rocca Delle Macie is fantastic with Italian food and much more. Our favorite with this Riserva Chianti Classico is pasta with tomato and/or meat sauces. We love it with a big pan of baked manicotti in a red sauce which has simmered for hours. A simple roast veal dish is another great option. Put a porcini risotto next to that veal and let the wine bring all of those luscious flavors together for you. Oh mio! If your meal is slated towards the simple, this Tuscan gem is wonderful with pizza. For a twist, how about one with prosciutto and arugula? Delicious. We don't drink this Riserva Chianti with sweet dishes, so after the serious eating is done, we'll have just one more glass (or two) with a nibble of tangy Provolone. Che perfezione!

Wine Spectator: "A dark version, featuring intense flavors of blackberry, black cherry, spice and tar up against a wall of tannins. All the elements are here, and it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Terrific length. Best from 2023 through 2040." Oct 2018

Winery: "Color: ruby red, becoming garnet with age. Bouquet: ample, intense and refined, with excellent variety of aromas. Taste: warm, robust, elegant with a persistent aroma. The bottle should be uncorked as early as an hour before serving or decanted for a few minutes before being drunk. This wine is particularly suited for red meats, roasts, wild game and dry cheeses. It should be served at a temperature of 65/68°F.

The grapes destined for the Riserva di Fizzano are carefully selected at the optimum moment of the vintage and the vinification of this riserva only happens in exceptional years. After the traditional fermentation the wine is matured in French oak barrels for over two years, then bottled and refined for almost a year before being released."
