This wine is a joy to drink now, it's already softened with a few years' age and you can really see the step up in quality. There's more of everything: it's deeper, darker, denser and more complex than the standard Classico. There's fuller fruit and that incredible structure. If you do want to hold onto it though, Marco is confident it will age for 20-25 years (if cellared well of course).
“Rocca di Montegrossi's 2010 Chianti Classico Vigneto San Marcellino is magnificent. Sweet herbs, leather, plums, black cherries and cedar are some of the many notes that take shape as this textured, vibrant Sangiovese/Pugnitello blend shows off its pedigree. A wine of distinction and total class, the San Marcellino is gorgeous today.” Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 93+ points.
“Rich black cherry and plum flavours are augmented by licorice, leather and autumn leaves in this forceful red. Balanced, building to a long, slightly chewy aftertaste that channels the fruit, earth and mineral components. Drink now through 2023.” Wine Spectator, 93 points.
