The History

On the weathered sandstone soils above Modigliana "Sangiovese speaks a different language - less alcohol, fresher acidity and more herbal and floral notes," according to Giorgio Melandri. Giorgio spent 20 years tasting and writing about the wines of Emilia-Romagna for Gambero Rosso, few people know the area and its varied terroirs as well as he does. 

This intimate knowledge inspired him to set up a project focusing on the potential of Modigliana’s different sites and soils. There are three valleys that climb up the Apennines from the town - Ibola, Tramazzo and Acereta which give their names to 3 wines made of pure Sangiovese, each expressing a unique mineral style that highlights the terroir its valley of origin. Giogio calls it "the traditional style before oak and over-ripeness came in" [for Sangiovese].



The Philosophy

The wines are produced by following the most classical of artisan methods: spontaneous fermentation using only wild yeasts, long macerations and a respect for the wines’ natural evolution. They’re aged in concrete vats so as not to influence or interfere with each wine’s diverse geographical characteristics.


Giorgio Melandri, who launched Mutiliana, is an expert wine critic and writer with a deep understanding of Emilia-Romagna’s wines. Thanks to this intimate knowledge of Romagna, he was the first person to focus on the potential of Modigliana’s terroirs. To create these wines, he personally selects the area’s best vineyards and grapes. The vineyards and their wines are overseen by agronomist and winemaker, Francesco Bordini, who is also from Romagna.
