BackgroundThe late Italo Zingarelli, a highly-acclaimed Italian film producer best known for his classic spaghetti westerns, purchased Rocca delle Macìe properties in Castellina in Chianti in 1973 and thus embarked 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 Tuscany's leading wine estates.This fine Morellino di Scansano comes from the prestigious Campomaccione estate in Tuscany's Grosseto province. The 198-acre property was acquired by Rocca delle Macìe in 1998. In 2003, the Zingarelli family extended its holdings in the area with the purchase of the 166-acre Casa Maria estate. Beginning in the 1990s, the Morellino di Scansano DOCG was recognized by a growing number of wine critics and connoisseurs who see its enormous potential for a new style of world-class wines from Tuscany with their own distinct personality.
