BackgroundThe late Italo Zingarelli, a highly-acclaimed Italian film producer best known for his classic spaghetti westerns, purchased the Rocca delle Macìe property in Castellina in Chianti in 1973 embarking on a career as one of Chianti Classico's more unlikely wine producers. Thanks to his dedication and passion and that of his son Sergio, who now oversees the property, Rocca delle Macìe has become one of Italy's leading wine estates. Defined by Italian poet Gabriele D'Annunzio as Italian sunshine in a bottle, Orvieto has been lauded by poets, artists, and other illustrious individuals since ancient times. Rocca delle Macìe's Orvieto Classico is produced using grapes harvested in the historic production zone.
