BackgroundFor well over 40 years, the Zingarelli family has dedicated themselves to crafting the finest wines, providing meticulous attention to the vineyards and championing Chianti Classico DOC. Established in 1973 by acclaimed Italian film producer Italo Zingarelli, Rocca delle Macìe totals 600 hectares (1,500 acres) across six estates in Tuscany. Led today by Italo's son Sergio, his wife Daniela and two children, Rocca delle Macìe is one of Tuscany'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 heart of the historic production zone.
