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 – extending across 93 hectares (230 acres) in all, of which only two were under vine – in order to create a winery in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone.

Locally renowned for the excellent exposure of its vineyards, Fizzano Farm was purchased in 1984 and consists of a “borgo” dating back from the 11th century and of about 61 hectares (150 acres), of which 35 hectares (88 acres) are dedicated to vineyards (Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Colorino) and 4.3 (11 acres) to olive groves. Average altitude: 985 - 623 feet above sea level. The soil type is Miocene deposits with a sandy-loamy texture, deep and calcareous.

Chianti Classico Riserva di Fizzano Gran Selezione is fermented using the most advanced techniques to preserve the grapes’ natural concentration.

After completing the fermentation, the wine matures for at least 2 years in 35hl French oak barrels, while a small proportion is aged in 225-litres barriques. It is then further refined in the bottle for a least one year.

Food pairing

Chianti Classico Riserva will complement to perfection any red meats, roasts and game. Recommended pairings: beef stew, pork medallions on chestnut sauce, pork fillet with Colonnata lard.
