ROCCATO

TOSCANA IGT

1988 saw the birth of the first bottle of Roccato, a Sergio Zingarelli
project when he fully took over the running of the family business
alongside his father Italo. Conceived as Sangiovese and Cabernet, from
the 2015 vintage pure Cabernet sauvignon from the Poggio alle Pecchie
vineyard.

The grapes come from the Poggio alle Pecchie vineyard of the Le Macìe estate in Castellina in Chianti.

Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon 100%

Planting Year: 1996

Location of the Vineyards: Le Macìe Estate, Poggio alle Pecchie Vineyard

Surface Area: 1.86 hectares

Planting Density: 4,200 vines/ha

Exposure: Sout

Altitude: 330m above sea level

Soil: Miocene deposits, marly limestone, clayey-sandy, alkaline, highly calcareous, and rich in skeleton (alberese).

After a careful selection of the grapes, vinification follows
with the most advanced cellar techniques, finishing with
maturation in French oak barriques (Allier origin, 1/3 new)
for a period of 12-15 months, followed by then at least a year
in the bottle.

Color: very intense ruby red tending to garnet with aging.
Bouquet: broad and persistent, with hints of red fruits and
spices ranging from cacao, to vanilla to coffee.
Taste: warm and well balanced, with a dense network of
tannins that well support and sustain the long aromatic
persistence.
