From modern to classic - Tour at Tenuta Coccapane and Azienda Merlotta
A tough job but also wonderful and rewarding
Ours is a tough job but it is also wonderful and rewarding work in which all members of the family are fully committed to their role and responsibilities. Even though we are always passionate about our work and pleased with the results achieved, we never feel satisfied and we eagerly look to the future, impatient to face new challenges.
Merlotta was born in 1962, thanks to the founders, Paolo Minzolini and his wife Giovanna Mimmi. After twenty years spent as day laborers, they bought the company giving life to their dream and to the birth of our brand. We dedicated them our most representative and important wines, Romagna DOC Sangiovese Superiore Riserva and Romagna DOCG Albana Secco late grapes harvest.Negli anni ‘90 la svolta, la seconda generazione conduce con solidità e concretezza il progetto, con l’acquisto di nuove tenute e il rinnovamento della cantina.
At the beginning of the 21st century, Fabio and Marco joined the company, the beginning of the 3 rd generation. Merlotta, thanks to them, looks confidently towards the future with high-tech facilities and receives numerous acknowledgements from wine critics, giving life to a new dream: to become the ambassador of high-quality wines from Romagna all over the world.
The experience we intend to provide you, is to make you identify with our world in the most real way possible and transmit our values. Nature should be observed, listened to silently and understood, not dominated.. at the same time wine as well. We illustrate the long journey that the grapes take before arriving on the tables of houses, of restaurants and clubs in the form of the famous nectar of the gods. Wine is at the center of our lives. Every day we strive to make it better, listening and understanding our territory.
