Description

Centuries of the Ricci Curbastro family farming tradition are represented by the wine cellars of Rontana in Brisighella (RA) and Capriolo in Franciacorta (BS).

Bottled wine was produced in Capriolo as far back as the 1800s, as can be seen today by the labels bearing the date 1885. It was transformed into a modern wine producing company by Gualberto Ricci Curbastro in 1967, the year the D.O.C. Franciacorta was instituted.

27 of the company's 32 hectars (67 acres) are covered in vineyards, set out in compliance with the exacting directions of modern wine production and the Franciacorta Wine Consortium, to which the company has adhered since its foundation.

The cellar, where the Franciacorta DOCG is fermented and slowly aged, is set underground in a large age-old park where Villa Evelina is found.

Oenologists Andrea Rudelli, Annalisa Massetti and Riccardo Ricci Curbastro follow the vinification process, merging their experience in wines to satisfy the increasingly demanding palates of consumers worldwide.

The cellar is always open to the public offering an opportunity to buy directly from the producers.
