DescriptionThe late Italo Zingarelli, a highly-acclaimed Italian film producer best known for his classic spaghetti westerns, purchased Rocca delle Macìe 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 Macìe has become one of Tuscany's leading wine estates.
