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. Ser Gioveto was first created in 1985 by Italo as a tribute to his son Sergio, who began working alongside him at the winery that same year; the name of the wine is also a reference to the archaic name of Sangiovese Sangioveto the primary grape in this Tuscan red wine.
