About Noelia Ricci Winery:

Noelia Ricci is a project started in 2010 within Pandolfa, an estate rich in history and stretching over an area of 140 hectares at the foot of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, just a few kilometers away from Predappio.

The name Pandolfa is believed to be derived from Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, known as the “Wolf of Rimini”, who is said to have stayed for a long time in this area before plundering the Castle of Fiumana in 1436.

From 1626 to 1941 the estate was owned by Marchesi Albicini. In 1941 the property was taken over by Commendator Giuseppe Ricci, an entrepreneur from Forlì. In the years of World War Two, Pandolfa’s happy times came to an abrupt end, going from the Marchesi’s holiday home to the tragic events of the war period.

The Story of Noelia Ricci:

Noelia Ricci is a dream translated into vision.

Respecting the land’s natural inclination and going back to the way farmers used to make Sangiovese wine in Romagna, in the area of Predappio.

In 2010, Marco began working on the new zoning project.

He chose the 7 top hectares, 9 at present, which represent a rare, if not unique, example of Chateaux in the Romagna region.

He put together a new team and, through mutual understanding and empathy, they found a new way to communicate and tell this story.

Noelia Ricci is a tribute to the classic style, with a contemporary approach.

By avoiding over-extraction, excessive alcohol content and highly concentrated colors, we strive to make wines having a fine structure, strong personality and complexity, while maintaining an inviting approach and pursuing drinkability.

The first vintage was produced in 2013.
