Rocca delle Macie wins its 10th Three Glasses

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is my very great pleasure to share with all those of you who believe - and have always believed - in our estate, the many accolades we have received from the recently issued wine guides, and in particular the excellent result in the Gambero Rosso Guide to Italian Wines.

This edition awards us our tenth Three Glasses since we began our winemaking adventure and I am proud to be able to emphasise once again the demonstration of “quality across the board” in Rocca wines: in 10 issues 6 wines have been given this top award, consolidating the substantial and meticulous work we have always invested in the vineyard and in the cellar for every single wine.

And this year, the Three Glasses, one of the highest accolades in Italy and elsewhere, has been awarded to our Chianti Classico Tenuta Sant’Alfonso 2018.

This marks a significant recognition for a wine that has always been part of Rocca delle Macìe’s history, always produced with the grapes from a single vineyard, evolving and expressing to the highest level all the qualities that the very special clay-rich soil of Tenuta Sant’Alfonso is able to offer.

A wine that has been awarded recognition for its subtle, appealing aromas and gentle entry on the palate followed by a ‘flavoursome progression’, making it a perfect accompaniment for the most varied dishes of Italian and international cuisine.

This confirmation of the consistent level of quality achieved stands alongside another extremely important award obtained at the Mundus Vini International Wine Awards, where it not only won the Gold Medal but also Best of Show Mundus Vini 2020.

A reward for all the investment, commitment and participation of the whole Rocca team, whom I embrace in my thoughts and thank with all my heart, especially in the unique period we are currently experiencing.

Buon lavoro,
Sergio Zingarelli Castellina
