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. 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. This fine Morellino di Scansano comes from the prestigious Campo Maccione estate in Tuscany's Grosseto province, which was purchased by the Zingarelli family in 1998.
