From Movies to Wine: The incredibly interesting story of Zingarelli and Rocca delle Macìe

 

Rocca delle Macìe was established in 1973, when Italo Zingarelli – producer of Ettore Scola’s “We All Loved Each Other So Much”, and also of the wildly popular series of films featuring comedy duo Bud Spencer and Terence Hill (including “They Call Me Trinity” and “Trinity Is Still My Name”) – decided to realize his lifelong dream by acquiring the “Le Macìe” estate in order to create a winery in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone. As part of Sergio’s long term business strategy and of his determination to achieve quality, he consolidates and develops, together with the collaboration of his sister Sandra, the paternal company which becomes popular worldwide, gaining many prizes and recognitions for his wines. The company estate now extends to more than 500 hectares (1250 acres) with, in total, more than 200 (500 acres) used as vineyards and 22 (54 acres) as olive groves, subdivided across the company’s six estates: Le Macìe, Sant’Alfonso, Riserva di Fizzano e le Tavolelle in the Chianti Classico Area, in addition to the Campomaccione and Casa Maria estates in the Morellino di Scansano Area (Maremma)

Techniques and Knowledge of the Land

 

The four estates, the milestones of the propriety, all belong to the Municipality of Castellina in Chianti in the South-West area of the Chianti Classico territory. An area particularly suited to the cultivation of vines and characterized by very heterogeneous soils that guarantee a variety of aromas and unique organoleptic characteristics. In an awareness that the part of Tuscany we call home is an immense resource to be protected and preserved, at Rocca delle Macìe we implement agronomic techniques that are geared not only towards constantly improving the products but also towards respecting the environment. Thanks to a set of techniques and technologies, it is possible to make winemaking rational and sustainable, while at the same time enhancing the land. In this context, the vineyards are considered a “living element”, in which the various different environmental, cultural and human factors help to express the very best of the vine and the terroir, with a view to achieving products of the highest quality. Our painstaking studies of the soils and vineyards have allowed for the micro-zoning of the winery, which in turn has enabled the accumulation of in-depth knowledge of every single plot, making it possible to define specific enological objectives for each individual parcel of land.

Rocca delle Macie - a relationship of reciprocal respect with the terroir

 

The development of Rocca delle Macìe as a commercial venture has been characterized from the outset by, on the one hand, a relationship of reciprocal respect with the terroir, and, on the other, by a consistent commitment towards improving product quality through innovation in the cellars. The successes that Rocca delle Macìe has achieved as a winery are based, first and foremost, on the painstaking approach we take in the vineyards. This quality-oriented approach dictates low yields per hectare, green harvest and leaf removal being performed during the summer months and a manual harvest directed by expert winegrowers. Our team of winemakers and cellar persons follow up the hard work done in the vineyards by adopting an equally meticulous attitude in the cellars, which have been expanded and modernized over the years and now feature state-of-the-art fermentation equipment to ensure precise control of the must, as well as modern maturation vessels to ensure optimum ageing.
