At the end of the 1970s, Rubizzo was something of a revolution for Chianti drinkers, who were used to wines that based their vigor on a mostly acidic structure, were not suited to aging and were rather pale in color.
Italo wanted a wine with greater aromatic complexity, more smoothness and more coloring substances, but at the same time also an enjoyable drinkability that would make it suitable for any palate and situation.
In a certain sense, Rubizzo was a precursor for a taste that subsequently became very common amongst wineries and wine consumers. It is the wine that has accompanied Rocca delle Macìe throughout its history, changing and evolving in step with the winery.
