Rocca delle Macie

Vernaiolo

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 vernāle, meaning ‘of spring’ and indicating the period of the year in which the Chianti, having got through the winter, was bottled. Still today, this lively ruby-red wine is ready to be consumed in the spring following the harvest, and retains its fresh and fruity characteristics for a long time.
