General information:
The late Italo Zingarelli, a highly-acclaimed Italian film producer best known for his classic spaghetti westerns, purchased Rocca delle Macie properties in Castellina in Chianti in 1973 and thus embarked on a career as one of Chianti Classico’s more
unlikely wine producers. Thanks to his dedication and passion and that of his son Sergio, who now oversees the property, Rocca delle Macie has become one of Tuscany’s leading wine estates.

Variety: 50% Sangiovese Grosso, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon

Origin: Tuscany, Italy

Aging: Selected grapes are harvested at the peak of their ripeness and then vinified employing the most advanced technology available. The wine is ready for bottling in the spring immediately following the vintage. Because of the maturity of the grapes, this is an especially smooth wine that retains its depth of fruit over an extended period of time.

Tasting notes:
Colour: Very intense ruby red, tending towards garnet

Aroma: Full, persistent, with an amount of toasty oak from the barrique aging

Palate: Dry, elegant with a good structure
