ORIGIN Liguria, Italy
The Cinque Terre wine was already sung since the Middle Ages as a wine used to set up royal tables.
In the Renaissance period it was already considered as an "important" wine in the lists of Italian wines, by Sante Lancerio, bottle holder of Pope Paul III Farnese. His is therefore a history of centuries, where the man with few means at his disposal cultivated the vine and produced the wine of his territory with effort and passion.
Natale Sassarini, in 1968 decided to produce and market the Cinque Terre wine in the taverns and hotels then existing in the area of the province of La Spezia. The cultivation of vines takes place on about 16 hectares of land and thanks to the grape contributors, almost always the same family of winemakers from the 1960s until today. Today the company is run by Giancarlo, son of Natale, and by his wife Marzia. Over the years the cellar has remained the same, although it has obviously been modernised.
