Rating
 Wine Spectator 90 points (Oct 31 2009)
Offers tar and blackberry aromas, with hints of herbs. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a chewy texture. Very ripe and flavorful. A powerful wine, but slightly hollow in the center palate. This should fill in with a little bottle age. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2011. 2,000 cases made. JS

Wine maker notes
The vinification of the grapes for the production of Roccato (only done in the best vintages) consists of a traditional maceration of the must for 15 days at 86F. The wine is then matured for 12 months in oak barriques, small 225L barrels made of French oak, and for about one year in the bottle.

Technical notes
13% abv

Food pairing
