Azienda Agricola Baccagnano’s 7 hectars lays on the first hills of Brisighella, at an alti- tude of around 100mt. The soils are clayey. The proximity to the river Lamone and the position towards the bottom of the valley causes a high temperature range even on the hottest summer days and a decent air circulation that helps us in the agronomic management of our vineyard. We don’t use any chemicals in the vineyard and we follow a biological protocol of vine management, trying to be the most respectful possible with our vineyards. We chosed to plant the autoctonous grapes of Romagna in the vineyard: Sangiovese, with the mosto tipycal clones of Brisighella, Trebbiano and Albana. Our new winery, built in 2019, is hidden like a hobbit’s house. The underground cellar helps us with a natural temperature control. We craft wines the organic way, with almost no intervention in the cellar besides sul- phites (at minimum levels) and decanting. We use different types of containers for refining our wines: Sangiovese sits in concrete tanks for as much as 6 months before being bottled. We also use exausted oak tonneau for refining part of the wine and, following our taste and istinct, whe chose each year how to blend the two. We use georgian qvevri (terracotta amphorae) for our Albana the stays in this magical containers during fermentation and refines in stainless steel tanks before being bottled. We use one kind of bottle for all of our production and we started from the beginning to close them with screw caps. We are Maura, Marta, Durante and me (Marco). We started the Azienda in 2011 by planting our first vineyard of Sangiovese and Trebbiano, while renovating an ancient Pieve on the hills of Brisighella that is now a gorgeous Agriturismo.
