      Tasting Notes and Description
      A wine to match with every course, it is particularly suited for meats and pastas.

      Colour: Lively ruby red.
      Nose: Savoury and fruity with traces of ripe red fruit, think raspberry and fresh plum.
      Taste: Fresh, balanced and full bodied, with subtle oak inflections.

      The history of Rocca delle Macie is, doubly intertwined with this Chianti Classico, which has evolved over the years both through the changes imposed upon it by updates to the regulations and through the enhancements made in the vineyards thanks to replanting operations, soil analysis and the clonal selection of Sangiovese.

      Vernaiolo is one of the longest-standing members of the Rocca delle Macìe family and has always served as the winery's most traditional example of Chianti. Its name derives from the Latin word 'vernale', meaning 'spring' and indicating the period of the year in which the Chianti, having got through the winter, was bottled.

      To this day Vernaiolo is ready to be consumed in the spring following the harvest and retains its fresh and fruity characteristics for a long time.

      "Sweet-blackberry and orange-peel aromas with a medium to light body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now."
