Rossi di Medelana

The roots of a strong and genuine family, like its vineyards.

This is not the story of an ordinary winery. This is the story of a farm that, over its 450 year history, has been able to seize the many opportunities offered by the Castelli Romani area, while preserving the rural atmosphere and the peculiarities of this scenic region and its landscape, characterised by lovely hills covered with vineyards and old olive trees. 


The ROSSI di MEDELANA family has always known that this estate was an invaluable treasure; that is why, over the years, it has always honoured its commitment to manage its borders and terroir without altering the cultural landscape of the area, despite the inevitable changes and challenges that every era brings. The ROSSI di MEDELANA was an aristocratic family from Bologna – where some of its members still live – but owned property in Lazio. One of its ancestors, indeed, was FELICE FERRI from Frascati, who was a prominent figure and a supporter of the ideological and literary movement known as the Risorgimento. He was also a close friend of Giuseppe GARIBALDI, whom he invited to stay with him both at the farm and at his house: a building in the heart of FRASCATI, Piazza Monte Grappa 11, where a commemorative plaque was also placed on the twentieth anniversary of his death, as here he spent the summer of 1875.

On the strength of its glorious past and supported by the perspicacity of the family member who is currently running it, the business was revived: the farm buildings have recently been brought back to their ancient glory with the renovation of the old farm dwelling, the event rooms, the exhibition/tasting/conference rooms, and the old caves carved out of tuff, where the wine made exclusively by the farm will age.

Last but not least, the cellar: a real architectural masterpiece inside

the eighteenth-century building, enclosed in old rock walls

but also receptive to innovative ideas and energy efficiency,

which is of paramount importance when you put quality first.
