Le Rocche Malatestiane is located in Rimini, on the Adriatic coast and has its wine production areas on the hills overlooking the sea. Le Rocche Malatestiane has always represented the wine producing roots of the Rimini area and it is with pride that since 1959 the company and its wines carry the name of the Malatesta family, Signoria (nobles) of Rimini from the 13th to the 15th century.

The Malatesta, especially Sigismondo Pandolfo, were great leaders and patrons and, thanks to them, works of art and architecture were made such as the strongholds and fortresses that can be seen on the hills, where the vines are cultivated.

The wines of Le Rocche Malatestiane are produced by 500 growers who directly farm 800 hectares of vineyards spread over the hills of Rimini’s province, from the upper Val Marecchia to the hinterland of Cattolica, on the border between Romagna and Marche.

From this wealth of vineyards the best DOC Colli di Rimini and DOC Romagna grapes are produced. This land appears like a mosaic of terroirs, differing from one another in terms of altitude, type of soil and relative distance from the sea.

Since 2011, through the project "Land of Sangiovese from Rimini", the company has worked at redeveloping its identity by focusing on the Sangiovese grape, which most distinguishes it since it represents over 70% of the local production.

After analysing the soils, three major zone and terroirs were identified. This, combined with new methods of grape selection and separate vinification in the winery, produced an interpretation of this grape variety that better highlighted its characteristics and terroirs of origin.

Alongside the production of Sangiovese Le Rocche Malatestiane also cultivates and produces wines from native grapes such as Rebola, Pagadebit and Biancame as well as from international varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, all of which have found a positive expression in the Rimini area.

It is of particular interest that the company’s cultural roots and passion for the territory have led to the restoration of a magnificent underground cave in the heart of Monte Giove, the hill on which Santarcangelo di Romagna stands, in the Province of Rimini. Here Le Rocche Malatestiane refines the Sangiovese “Sigismondo”, in special conditions of temperature stability and balance which have greatly contributed to making this an extraordinary wine.
