Rocca delle Macìe

Famiglia Zingarelli Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend

Sangiovese 90%
Colorino 5%
Cabernet Sauvignon 5%.
Didnt think the DOC allowed non- native varietals. Anyway, cherry galore. 14.5 alcohol/ a bit surprising. Little tannic on the finish by itself, but shines with roasted chicken.

Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2019

Not the Chardonnay,
Nice bottle for the 💰

Winemaker's Notes:"This unusual white Pinot Noir "Blanc de Noir" 2019 is 100% Pinot Noir from the famed “Grand Cru” level Sanford and Benedict Vineyard. The free run juice was separated off the sorting table and native-fermented separately in stainless barrels. Usually bottled as a Rosé, but due to ideal circumstances with the fruit arriving at the winery unusually cold due to very cool nights during the pick - no color was absorbed during that short time in the picking bins. Resulting in a beautifully complex white wine from Pinot Noir. Only 40 cases made."

The Modern Syrah 2017

A Santa Barbara County Proprietary Red Wine. Unfiltered and unfined. Entirely constructed of Estrella-clone Syrah from two ends of the Santa Rita Hills and a sprinkling of Viognier. Native-yeast fermented with 40% whole cluster inclusion and raised in large neutral barrels for 26-months. Matthias’ expression of great Syrah from a great Syrah growing region, cool coastal vineyards north of Santa Barbara. Recommended to a little above cellar temperature.

NOSE
Young boysenberries. Steeping Darjeeling tea. A hint of barbecue smoke drifts by.

COLOR/MOUTHFEEL
The color of a deep burgundy Chrysler Cordoba. Big, velvety mouthfeel, but not Corinthian leather.

TASTE/FINISH
Taste: Black cherries, just before 100% ripe. A touch of blueberry pie, but savory, not sweet. Finish: A finish of black pepper with a touch of cocoa nib at the last few touches of finish. Juicy, bustling tannins right to the point where you think they’re a touch too bold, but then the finish reaches over and says “I believe you were mistaken”.

MUSIC
Jazz trumpeter Jeremy Pelt with the track “I’ve Just Seen Her” on his album “The Art of Intimacy”. The Jazz Crusaders with the track “Young Rabbits” from their “Festival Album”, 1966, recorded live at the Newport and Pacific Jazz Festivals.
