Winery Notes:
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. SaSyr, as its name suggests, is a singular and sublime blend of sangiovese and syrah grapes from the Tuscan vineyards of Rocca delle Macie.
