Background

For well over 50 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.

Winemaking & Aging

After careful selection, the grapes are vinified according to the traditional methods of Chianti Classico. Once fermentation is complete, the wine matures in French oak barrels of 35hl for about two years, and then further refines for a minimum of three months in the bottle.
