The Cellars





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.
 Indeed, as part of the ongoing endeavor to manage production and interpret consumer requirements as effectively as possible, in 2002 Rocca delle Macìe commissioned the construction of a new cellar dedicated to the ageing of a special selection of red wines. The cutting-edge maturation area, located on the Le Tavolelle estate, has the capacity to house almost one thousand barriques.
