Podere Riosto is located in the hills at the south of Bologna (Pianoro), 75 km from Florence and 16 km from Bologna city center.

Podere Riosto, 350 m above sea level, benefits from great solar exposure, good ventilation, warm daytime and cool nights.

Winters are cold with plenty of snowfall and summers are long and hot: the combination of these factors is key for great wines. The soil is composed of sand (50%), lime (25%) and clay (25%) and was created during the prehistoric age of Pliocene. At that time the sea moved into the Apennine basin leaving precious sediments.

Podere Riosto is a unique piece of ancient history just outside Bologna: the landscape is typical of the Apennine mountains (which run the length of the Italian peninsula). Our grapes DOC from Colli Bolognesi are:

  • Pignoletto (5,41 hectares)
  • Sauvignon (2,06 hectares)
  • Chardonnay (0,96 hectare)
  • Barbera (2,72 hectares)
  • Cabernet (2,70 hectares)
  • Merlot (1,34 hectares)
  • Vite del Fantini (0,66 hectares)

The harvest is done by hand.

The low yield per hectare exalts the organoleptic and olfactory characteristics and to obtain high quality wines.
