China: Ad Hoc tools for a prestigious interlocutor

The communication plan designed to increase and improve the visibility of our commercial profile is enriched with new tools. The social activity of Tenute d’Italia has in fact broadened its horizons to include among its recipients one of the most interesting markets in the world: China.

The official profiles of Tenute d’Italia are already available on we WeChat and YouKu, and our team is working to explore further developments on other platforms.

Alongside this important activity, thanks to the technical and linguistic support of our team specialised in this specific market, we have recently been able to add the organisation of online events with our business partners and their customers to carry out authentic group tastings.

These first experiences which, to our delight, have met with great success among all the participants, will certainly be the object of further study to offer our customers a service evermore perfectly suited to their specific needs... so that we really do feel closer!

The grape harvesting operations  have officially started in our vineyards!

As expected, the first varieties to be harvested are Pignoletto and Albana, the most famous indigenous Romagna withe grapes that will give us extraordinarily fresh and fragrant wines.

In the coming weeks, all the other white and red varieties, whose ripening process is carefully monitored by our technicians, will follow.

We invite you to follow us on our blog and on our social channels to experience with us this special moment of the year!

Cheers!!

I vini romagnoli: un insieme perfetto di gusto e tradizione

Romagna wines

Un buon vino ha la capacità di trasmettere, grazie ai suoi sapori caratteristici, la storia della terra in cui viene prodotto. La lavorazione del vino è un processo complesso e delicato, che richiede tempo e dedizione e che si concentra principalmente sul mantenimento delle qualità del luogo d’appartenenza: la terra di provenienza emerge sempre nei vini che decidiamo di assaporare, soprattutto quando parliamo del territorio romagnolo.

I vini di Romagna nascono infatti in una terra operosa, ricca di persone che vogliono tramandare la cultura della vite di padre in figlio, mantenendo di conseguenza attività principalmente familiari.

La regione Emilia-Romagna possiede una superficie vitata superiore a 50mila ettari, che ricopre tutto il territorio in maniera uniforme, da Piacenza a Rimini.

La struttura geologica del territorio romagnolo è fondamentale nella produzione del vino: i terreni collinari del nostro Appennino sono composti da un bilanciamento perfetto di argilla, limo e calcare, fondamentali soprattutto per la produzione di vini rossi di qualità.

La vite infatti non richiede terreni particolarmente fertili: le caratteristiche del terreno più importanti per la sua coltivazione riguardano piuttosto il drenaggio, che permette alla pianta di non rimanere troppo a contatto con l’acqua e i sali minerali.

Un terreno come quello presente nella superficie romagnola quindi riesce ad assorbire l’acqua, cedendola gradualmente alle radici, grazie alla presenza dell’argilla, responsabile inoltre della sua compattezza e plasticità.  

I terreni calcareo-argillosi come quelli che caratterizzano il territorio romagnolo danno vita a vini di grande qualità.

Le zone di produzione più importanti dei vini romagnoli si suddividono tra le province di Ravenna, Rimini, Forlì-Cesenae il circondario di Imola, e le loro terre danno vita a prodotti rinomati ovunque, primo tra tutti il Sangiovese, considerato il Re dei vini romagnoli.

Dietro allo stesso appellativo del Sangiovese si sprecano storie e leggende: secondo alcuni il nome deriverebbe dal Sanctus Giove, il Dio dei Romani, mentre per altri è da ricondurre a Sanguis Jovis, il sangue di Giove, nome dato dai monaci cappuccini di un convento sul Monte Giove, proprio a Santarcangelo di Romagna.

Indipendentemente dalla storia, quello che sappiamo noi è che il Sangiovese è oggi il vitigno a bacca rossa più coltivato d’Italia, rappresentando un vanto non solo all’interno della nostra penisola ma anche all’estero.

Tenute d’Italia tenta ci consolidare sempre di più il rapporto indissolubile tra cultura e vino, trasformando il prodotto finale in una congiunzione perfetta di questi due “ingredienti”.

Il segreto è quello di sfruttare completamente le caratteristiche uniche nel territorio romagnolo, rendendo i vini impossibili da emulare: basti pensare alla Tenuta Santerno, capace di sfruttare una storia geologica straordinaria caratterizzata dalla presenza della Vena di Gesso Romagnola, l’elemento più distintivo della valle omonima.

Tenuta Santerno è solo uno dei brand di riferimento di Tenute d’Italia: ogni tenuta è caratterizzata da una vera e propria venerazione per la cultura del territorio, grazie alla quale i vini che vengono offerti riescono a mantenere quel gusto tradizionale che li contraddistingue.

New Members for the Tenute d'Italia Network

We are pleased to announce the entry of new companies into the Tenute d'Italia network: in recent months the team led by our sales office has focused on the important network expansion project to include some new, important Italian territories - and their great wines - to satisfy our customers' needs even more fully.

Our attention has turned specifically to Tuscany, in particular to the denominations Chianti D.O.C.G., Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. and Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G., involving three companies:

  CORTONESI1  BINDISERGARDI  CIANFANELLI

You will already find a short presentation and links to the official websites of the companies on our site in the “Partnerships” section, where you can also discover all the other producers that make up the Tenute D’Italia network.

Not Only Native Vines

In the article dedicated to our membership in the White Wines Club of Romagna we mentioned the white wines in our catalogue produced with indigenous (white) vines of our region, namely Albana and Pignoletto.
However, the production of white wines in Tenute d’Italia is not limited to these, but also includes other wines produced with so-called international varieties but which are part of the Romagna wine tradition almost as much as the properly indigenous varieties.

We are speaking in particular of Chardonnay, which in "Il Fascinoso" finds a truly territorial declination in combination with Trebbiano, Pinot Grigio, which makes up 100% of the brand new product of the Conte Zardi line "Il Mirabile", and Manzoni Bianco, used for the production of "Cheilante", a wine that due to its special characteristics is gathering more and more public success both in Italy and on the international scene.

Over the last few days on our social networks we have had the pleasure of publishing a number of images that recount the recent journey made by our sales manager, Luca Garelli, across Europe to visit some of our most loyal customers.

One of the fundamental values on which Tenute d'Italia is based is in fact the care of the human relationships, even ahead of the commercial ones, which bind us to our customers. For this reason we considered it essential, as soon as possible, to finally make a reality of a closeness that over the last few months has only been possible virtually.

During this journey, which literally led us right across Europe, we had the pleasure of presenting in person the numerous projects launched in recent months and the new collaborations that have come to enrich Tenute d'Italia's commercial offer, toasting to a future that we hope can bring back to everyone the joy of normality.

Tenute d'Italia is DEMETER Certified

The process started in the summer by Tenute d’Italia Società Agricola to obtain Demeter certification for its cellar has reached its conclusion.

Demeter is a private association of producers, processors and distributors of biodynamic agricultural and food products recognized in 43 states - managed by their respective national offices but coordinated by the Demeter International headquarters in Darmstadt (Germany).

To obtain Demeter certification, each producer must undergo a scrupulous inspection process that verifies compliance with the rules and methods envisaged for plant production (use of compost and preparations, prohibition of genetically modified materials, etc.) but also general guidelines for the processing of each specific product category.

With the attainment of the certification for the production plant in Linaro, the Demeter certified supply chain is perfected within our network, already inaugurated by Carlo Morini's "Polenghe" Organic Farm and now completed by Tenute d'Italia Società Agricola .

Alongside the projects focused on organic production that have already been launched - first of all the project for the gradual green conversion of the entire Canale dei Molini line - it will now be possible for Tenute d'Italia to further enrich the value of its offer to meet even more specific needs of every single market sector… but not only!

We consider every certification system - and consequently of control - imposed on our network to be an important addition to the value we offer to our customers, testifying to the commitment that every member of the Tenute d'Italia network shows on a daily basis in order to guarantee high quality standards at every stage of the production, transformation and distribution process.

For further information on Demeter certification, we invite you to visit the association's official website, while to learn more about our commitment to a sustainable and nature-friendly production system, we invite you to download our catalogue or contact us directly at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thank You Guys!

While the last of the operations of perfecting the 2020 vintage are still underway in the Tenute d’Italia winery in Linaro (Imola), we announce the official closure of the harvesting activities in our vineyards.

Tenute d’Italia wants to extend a big thank you to all the members of its team who for almost two months have been involved in the harvesting operations, carefully selecting the grapes that - we hope - will give us one of the best vintages of our production history.

Thanks guys for your work and your commitment, essential elements for building the present and the future of our company!

We will tell you about...our Harvest!

There is only a little more than a month to go before the harvest begins, and to pay homage to this truly magical moment, around which all our work literally revolves, we are working on a very special project, created together with our technicians to bring you (virtually) into our cellars to observe first-hand how the wine is produced.

Better: we’re going to tell you all about the work that we do, or rather the particular techniques and processes that are carried out specifically by our staff for the production of wines from the Tenute d'Italia catalogue.

Our story will be articulated by revealing each phase of the two main winemaking techniques, the white and the redvinifications, through the direct testimony of our technicians.

You can start making your contributions right now to enrich our interviews by sending us your questions and telling us your curiosities through our social channels or by email.

White sparkling wine: the consolidated love between grape juice and bubbles

Always combined with the most disparate dishes, white sparkling wine is one of the most consumed wines of all, both in Italy and abroad.

Its effervescence lightens even the most complicated days, sweeping away any bad thoughts, right from the first sip. Yet, what we consume so naturally in reality, does not exist at all in nature.

In fact, wine is not born sparkling but becomes so, during the very first process of alcoholic fermentation. The love - now consolidated - between wine and bubbles therefore flares up from the earliest stages of production, when the grapes are pressed and transformed into must.

Clara C: the white sparkling wine for every type of palate

Clara C is a white sparkling wine which perfectly celebrates the relationship between grape juice and bubbles.

A wonderful Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG from the homonymous winery, it is grown in the famous hills of Conegliano Valdobbiadene, between Venice and the Dolomites.

A bright greenish colored Prosecco, crossed by a minute perlage, Clara C gives off an intense, very fine and fruity aroma. A dry and lean white sparkling wine, it is a soft and well balanced product, with an excellent aromatic persistence.

For this reason, it is perfect as an aperitif, but also a perfect companion with fish, crustaceans and shellfish appetizers.
