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.
VinificationGrapes are hand selected from the Le Macie estate in Castellina in Chianti. After alcoholic fermentation & malolactic fermentation in concrete vats, the wine is aged 18 months in French barriques (50% new oak), followed by at least 20 months in bottle.
