The estate Casetto dei Mandorli has been producing vintage wines at Predappio Alta (a vine growing area historically renowned in Romagna) since 1885.
Indeed since the year 1000, as quoted in the municipal statutes of the time, the local economy was based on sangiovese vine growing: feudatories used to distribute the large vineyards among their peasants who’d take the greatest care of Bacchus’ trees.
Giuseppe Nicolucci is the heir of three generations of wine-growers who have always devoted their passion to the estate vineyards at Predappio Alta, where underground cellars house the oak casks in which the Sangiovese ages.
Casetto dei Mandorli is a typical Italian estate, a family run farm driven by the concept that the variety must match the terroir and climate; that’s why it continues to set the standard for Romagna and remains at the forefront of the region's top wine producers. Today, the winery and vineyards are operated under the same guiding principles with fourth generation wine-dresser Alessandro at the helm.
Predappio has its own microclimates, its own traditions, and its own history, all of which are reflected in the wine produced at Casetto dei Mandorli.
