Ricci Curbastro Farm Estate – Winegrowers since 18th generations
Agricultural tradition since the thirteenth century, the Ricci Curbastro family runs farm estates in Rontana di Brisighella (Ravenna), and the homonymous farm estate of Capriolo in Franciacorta (Brescia).
Of the 32 hectares of estate surface area, 27.5 (68 acres) are planted with vineyards according to the strict guidelines of modern viticulture and of the Consorzio Vini Franciacorta (Franciacorta Wine Consortium), of which the estate is member since its foundation.
In the secular park is located the underground wine-cellar, where the fermentation processes and the slow aging of Franciacorta DOCG take place.
The vinification is controlled by the enologists Annalisa Massetti, and Riccardo Ricci Curbastro: a mix of experiences for wines that are meant for the increasingly demanding tastes of consumers worldwide.
Inside the farmhouses of the Ricci Curbastro estate is located the Agricultural and Wine Museum, a unique reality in Franciacorta that preserves thousands of objects that testify to the agricultural work of the past.
THE WINE CELLAR IS ALWAYS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, offering the possibility to buy directly from the producer.
