Gran Selezione “Sergio Zingarelli” in the top 10 Italian red wines
Rocca delle Macìe’s Chianti Classico Gran Selezione “Sergio Zingarelli” 2011 was ranked eighth by Gentleman magazine – contained within the March newsstand edition of Milano Finanza – which compiles the rankings of the leading Italian wine guides for 2016, along with the scores attributed by the renowned Wine Spectator magazine and by the world’s most famous wine critic, Robert Parker, founder of The Wine Advocate.
In this ranking, “Sergio Zingarelli” takes its place next to wines that have enjoyed excellent reputations on the Italian and global markets for decades, such as Sassicaia, Tignanello and Grattamacco; this is a very significant result, given that the Gran Selezione 2011 is just the second vintage on sale, so it is a completely new wine but one that has been able to impress from the get-go with its strong personality, which is the result of a quality-focused project that was launched almost 20 years ago. It is, then, a young wine, but already something of a classic – the fruit of the experience and expertise of Rocca delle Macìe, a winery that has made its name on the worldwide market over the course of the past 40 years.
That “Sergio Zingarelli” 2011 features in the global Top Ten of Italian wines is a recognition not only of the quality of Rocca delle Macìe’s output, but also of the new, Tuscan wine-icon, Gran Selezione; indeed, it is a confirmation of the validity of this new level defined by the Chianti Classico Consortium, positioned at the very top of the qualitative pyramid of Chianti Classico DOCG.
