Rocca delle Macìe was founded in 1973 by the movie producer Italo Zingarelli who purchased the estate “Le Macìe”, about 85 hectares of land of which just two planted with vines, and transformed it into a winery at the very heart of the Chianti Classico area. In 1985, Sergio, Italo’s youngest son, started working at his father’s side and in 1989, was appointed Company President. Sergio consolidates and develops the paternal company which becomes popular worldwide, gaining many prizes and recognitions for his wines. The company now extends to more than 500 hectares with, in total, more than 200 used as vine-yards and 80 as olive groves, subdivided across the company’s six estates.
