Azienda Agricola Mirco Mariotti
A bit of history
Mariotti is driven by an interest in growing quality vines in the sandy soils of their terroir. Their endeavours began in 1976, and since 2009, the agronomic management of the winery was entrusted to Mirco Mariotti. Mirco after studying Oenology at the University of the Sacred Heart in Piacenza began to collaborate with his sister Barbara in the family business.
Today the vineyard of “Fondo Luogaccio”, which is located inside the Natura 2000 Site called “Duna di San Giuseppe”, is recognized by the Emilia Romagna Region as a historical vineyard with the name of “Duna della Puia”, the ancient name of the area. The goal of the winery is to produce local wines in the wake of the tradition of Emilia Romagna wines, with particular attention to the ancestral “refermentation in the bottle”, which gives sparkling wines a depth and a capacity of evolution which is hardly achievable with other production techniques. From this attention of the Mariotti Family was also born the project of valorization of Ferrara’s viticulture called “Terroir Ferrara”.
