Since 1925 the Straccali wine estate in Tuscany, founded by its namesake, Giulio Straccali, has been in the vanguard of progressive Chianti wine producers. An expert enologist, entrepreneur, farmer and wine producer, Giulio Straccali was above all, a man of vision. Through the wines of Tuscany, he sought to communicate to the rest of the world the scents, colors and flavors of his beloved homeland.
In 1978 Italo Zingarelli, founder of the Rocca delle Macie estate in Castellina in Chianti began what has become a long and fruitful relationship with the Straccali family.
United by a respect for tradition and heritage and a shared ambition of achieving the dream set out by Giulio Straccali many decades earlier the two families have pursued the same objective.
Today Straccali’s sterling reputation stands for outstanding quality wines and exceptional value.
