Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico Vigneto San Marcellino 2006
|Brand||Rocca di Montegrossi|
Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Chianti Classico Vigneto San Marcellino is a dark, brooding wine imbued with tons of dark fruit, smoke, tar and scented French oak, all of which come together in a powerful style. The wine needs a few years for the oak to come together and for the tannins to soften, but it should drink beautifully once it has had time to come together. This is the first vintage of San Marcellino in which a small percentage of Pugnitello was added to the Sangiovese. San Marcellino spent 18 months in French oak prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026.
