Rocca delle Macie
Rocca delle Macìe is a young and dynamic winery which in a little over 30 years it has forged a reputation throughout the wine world as one of Chianti Classico’s most highly regarded estates. It was back in 1973 that Italo Zingarelli, movie producer, at last realized his life-long dream of purchasing the estate “Le Macìe” - about 85 hectares of land of which just two planted with vines - and transforming it into a winery. In 1985, Sergio, Italo’s youngest son, became personally responsible for the worldwide distribution network and in 1989, with his wife Daniela at his side, was appointed Company President.
The company estate now extends to more than 600 hectares with, in total, more than 200 used as vineyards and 80 as olive groves, subdivided across the company’s six estates: Le Macìe, Sant’Alfonso, Fizzano e le Tavolelle in the Chianti Classico zone, in addition to the lastly purchased Campomaccione and Casamaria in the Morellino di Scansano zone.
