Degustation notes

Dark purple colour, a concentrated nose of ripe fruit, supported by spicy notes, roasted and vanilla aromas recalling the barrel, with hints of stewed fruit, blackberries and prunes; classic in the mouth, nice body, powerful tannins, compact and well-balanced, full-bodied and concentrated, with a typical, slightly bitter finish; a beautiful Chianti, distinguished by its modernity.

    Guter Chianti, anständiger Hauswein. Zur Spitzenklasse fehlt aber noch ein bisschen Körper. Leichte Unterschiede zwischen den einzelnen Flaschen.

    Klares tiefes Rubin. Saubere, ausgeprägte NAse mit intensiven Kirsch-Aromen und Noten von Pfeffer und Leder. Am Gaumen trocken mit hoher Säure und viel Tannin. Wiederum sehr würzige, ledrige Aromatik mit schoner rotbeeriger Frucht. Langer Abgang. Der Rocca Guicciarda repräsentiert die Toscana perfekt und passt mit seinem herben Charme perfekt zur Toskanischen Küche. Insbesondere zum Bistecca alla Griglia!
