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. This Chianti Classico DOCG is produced with 100% Sangiovese grapes cultivated exclusively on the Sant'Alfonso estate.
VinificationAfter careful selection, grapes are gently pressed and the must undergoes traditional vinification. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months and rests an additional one year in bottle prior to release.
