“Ventanni”, a label to celebrate the bond between Riccardo Cotarella and San Patrignano

From a small cellar to more than 100hectares of today’s vineyards: the flagship of the Community of Muccioli
Ventanni, the label that celebrates the bond between Riccardo Cotarella and San Patrignano

When Vincenzo Muccioli founded the Recovery Community of San Patrignano, in Romagna, a stone’s throw away from Rimini, the winery was one of the first sectors of formation in the late seventies. At the time, there were a few hectares of Sangiovese and Trebbiano, well-kept vineyards, manual harvesting and crushing with the feet, a press and five wooden barrels. The leap in quality came in the nineties when the rows covered 100hectares, but it was with the arrival of Riccardo Cotarella, in 1999, that viticulture in San Patrignano became something extremely serious.
The main international grape varieties, red (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc) and white (Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc), are grown, the Sangiovese and Trebbiano plants are re-planted, and the result is under the eyes of the entire wine world: from the 5,700 square meter cellar, where the best technology is available, high-quality wines are created, produced by the work of 75 young people from the Community, capable of gaining market shares and recognition.
It has been twenty years since the current president of Assoenologi and the Union Internationale des Oenologues arrived in San Patrignano, facing a difficult challenge, symbolically celebrated in the only possible way: with a label, called “Ventanni”, precisely to impart the path taken together, achieving concrete results, but above all building a deep bond of friendship, esteem, affection and support. It is a 100% Sangiovese DOC Superiore, with a limited edition of 6,500 bottles, in addition to the eleven already on the market among whites, reds and sparkling wines distributed in Italy and abroad.
