 Wine Enthusiast 91 points (May 2009)
Roccato is a super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon that delivers aromas of mature fruit and chewy succulence in the mouth. The wine has structure and firm tannins backed by round notes of Maraschino cherry and blackberry preserves. M.L.

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.
