Le Rocche Malatestiane is located in Rimini, on the Adriatic coast with vineyards
situated on the hills overlooking the sea. The wine cooperative was established in
1994, by the merging of the most ancient vine-growing and wine-producing
structures of the Rimini Province: the Cantina Riminese and the Cantina Valconca di
Morciano. The cooperative takes its name from one of Rimini’s oldest noble families,
the Malatesta family. The vineyards are distributed throughout the hills of the Province
of Rimini and represent a mosaic of terroirs, with varying altitudes, soil types and
influence from the sea. Proud to represent the region and the passionate growers
who farm it, the wines from Le Rocche Malatestiane beautifully showcase the
Sangiovese grape and the terroirs of Rimini.
The Sangiovese red grapes are from hillside vineyards near Rimini, not far from the
Adriatic Sea. The vineyards are comprised of a low clay-based topsoil, which is rich in
limestone with a rocky subsoil.
The red grapes were vinified with no skin contact, in order to produce a white wine.
The juice was exposed to oxygen to remove any traces of pink colour, the
fermentation then took place in oak barrels. The wine was aged in oak barrels for
eight to ten months, imparting the creamy oak texture and flavours, followed by a
further six months in bottle prior to release.
Intense bouquet of fruit combined with creamy oak notes. The wine is elegant, full
bodied, with a lingering finish.
A fantastic wine to pair with dishes such as fresh pasta with truffle olive oil, chargrilled
poultry, full flavoured fish such as tuna or salmon and fresh seafood.
