The beauty of the Chianti Classico territory, between the Siena of the Middle Ages and the Florence of the Renaissance, the ability of companies to take care of the territory and its culture, and the charm of an ancient practice. These are the ingredients of the new initiative of Rocca delle Macìe, one of the reference realities of the Gallo Nero territory, of the Zingarelli family, which, after having inaugurated “Galleria Trinità”, in the fifty years of the release of the film “They called him Trinity” (produced by Italo Zingarelli, father of Sergio who today leads the company, and thanks to whose success Rocca delle Macìe was born, ed), broadens its horizons of sustainability, becoming a promoter of the ancient “Art of Falconry” already recognized by Unesco like a living Patuman.
“To celebrate the relationship between man, fauna and nature, the Zingarelli family – explains a note – therefore decided to use a large part of their land, still covered by native vegetation of holm oaks, strawberry trees, brooms, to the art of falconry, with the establishment of the “Rocca delle Macìe Hunting Wildlife Reserve”, which thus becomes the first Italian pole dedicated to exhibition, training and ancestral hunting, practiced with falconids “.
Millennial art and discipline, of which Emperor Frederick II of Swabia was very expert, author of the treatise “De arte venandi cum avibus” (“The art of hunting with birds”), hunting with falcons “sees man and the raptor in a symbiotic relationship almost unique in nature. In many countries – from the Middle East to Eastern Europe, from the Siberian plains to Mongolia – it represents one of the few links still existing with ancient local traditions and with the natural environment ”.
From now on, therefore, the Chianti Classico hills of Rocca delle Macìe together with the scenic vineyards and ancient ruins, “will therefore be populated by hawks and trainers who, in addition to increasing the beauty of the area, will also help to restore a natural balance very delicate and unstable which too often – and for various interests – has always been unfavorable to wildlife ”, explains the company. With the new Rocca delle Macìe wildlife project, a new management program for the different varieties of crops will be implemented in order to help the ecosystem making it – even if less productive – more attractive for wildlife and creating more natural and more natural conditions. rich in biodiversity.
“They will be days dedicated entirely to noble hunting” – declares Sergio Zingarelli, president of Rocca delle Macìe – “In the setting of the Chianti area, where joy and the desire to share stories, strictly around a table and with a nice glass of wine, will certainly not be lacking”.
