Rocca delle Macìe
Vin Santo del Chianti DOC
Grape VarietiesTrebiano, Malvasia Toscana
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 Mace 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 Mace is one of Tuscany's leading wine estates. Though the origin of the name Vin Santo (Holy Wine) is debated, it is a wine produced using traditional methods that have changed very little over time.
VinificationWell-ripened grapes from the Le Macìe estate are partially dried out and the must is transferred to 200-liter casks to age for at least three years. This allows the wine to naturally acquires alcohol and sugar contents.
