Tuscany

Supplier: Straccali

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, the colours and the flavours of his beloved homeland. Convinced of the need to protect and nurture the reputation and quality of Chianti wines, Straccali consistently showed a pioneering spirit. He was instrumental in the founding of the Black Rooster Consortium and from 1942 until his death in 1969, he served as V ice President. In 1978 Italo Zingarelli, founder of the Rocca delle Macie estate in Castellina in Chianti, as part of his long- term business strategy and sharing the same dream set out by Giulio Straccali many decades earlier, purchases the company from the Straccali family. From then on, thanks to the painstaking work done by the Zingarelli family, Straccali stands for outstanding quality wines and exceptional value becoming a well known brand all over the world, exported in over 30 countries, among which the most important are: United States, Canada, Mexico, France, England, Germany, Switzerland, Luxemburg, Turkey, Holland, Ireland, and Brazil.
