Among hills covered with vines, cherry and olive trees, in the village of Fiumana di Predappio, in Emilia-Romagna, stands the majestic Villa Pandolfa, built in 1700 by the Marchesi Albicini. It was here, in the 1940s, that the Ricci family started a flourishing agricultural business that places it among the most renowned producers of Sangiovese. Surrounding the Pandolfa estate are some 40 hectares of estate-owned vineyards, lying on soft hills all between 150 and 400 metres above sea level, guaranteeing a breezy climate. The soil from which they draw nourishment is characterised by a calcareous composition, rich in mineral salts, with clays of different colours and densities, ranging from grey-brown to ochre. Recently, the Pandolfa farm has also decided to make a commitment to environmental sustainability, converting much of its production according to organic farming principles. After the harvest, an ageing period of at least 6 months follows in the Pandolfa wine cellar to ensure the right full flavour for the important reds, whites and rosés. After this time, Pandolfa wines are transferred into characteristic bottles, bearing images of works of art. It is a reminder of both the Renaissance and the 1950s, symbolising the producer's connection with art and history. Inside Villa Pandolfa, in fact, splendid frescoes and even a room in which the poet Giosuè Carducci used to stay are still preserved. Name and address of producer/distributor: Pandolfa - Via Pandolfa, 35 47016, Fiumana (FC). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
