Producer profile

Folicello

Marco and Antonella, the passionate team behind Folicello, began their winemaking journey in the scenic Castelfranco Emilia, Modena, Emilia Romagna region. Since the early 1980s, their goal has been simple yet heartfelt: to create authentic, vibrant wines that reflect the beauty of their surroundings. Initially intended for personal enjoyment and sharing with friends, their endeavor has since evolved significantly.

Today, their modest estate features a modern cellar designed for efficient grape vinification. Beyond wine, Marco and Antonella have expanded their offerings to include organic jams and other grape-derived products, as well as a dedicated vinegar production facility. This expansion reflects their deep connection to the countryside and their appreciation for the enriched lifestyle it provides.

For this duo, winemaking extends beyond commercial success; it's about embracing and showcasing the benefits of organic viticulture. They believe in producing superior wines that are feasible and deeply fulfilling, embodying a sustainable, nature-aligned way of life. Winemaking for them is more than a profession; it's a means to demonstrate a harmonious coexistence with nature.

Wine region

Emilia–Romagna, Italy

Emilia-Romagna's viticultural legacy dates back to ancient times, with both the Etruscans and Romans recognizing the value of the region's fertile terrains.

Subsequently, they initiated the cultivation of vineyards, thereby establishing the foundational pillars of the region's wine legacy. Over time, Emilia-Romagna welcomed various traders and settlers, and their collective contributions further shaped its wine traditions.


The Terroir of Emilia-Romagna

Geographically, Emilia-Romagna spans from the expansive plains of the Po River to the rugged terrains of the Apennine Mountains. The region's climatic conditions, moderated by the Adriatic Sea, provide an optimal environment for viticulture. Its terroir, characterized by a composite soil structure of clay, silt, and sand, accentuates the uniqueness of its vineyards.

This particular soil composition ensures that grapes cultivated here encapsulate the region's intrinsic qualities, resulting in wines that reflect the true essence of Emilia-Romagna.


The Wines of Emilia-Romagna

Emilia-Romagna is a repository of diverse wines, with Lambrusco often being the most recognized. However, its offerings extend beyond this effervescent variety. The region's Sangiovese reds are emblematic of its profound wine-producing expertise, while the Trebbiano whites exhibit a distinct lightness and elegance.

With an increasing emphasis on organic and natural wine production, Emilia-Romagna is poised to be at the forefront of contemporary vinicultural innovations, underscoring the belief that wine is not merely a beverage but a narrative of its origins.
