About the maker

Chiara Bianchi and Daniele Presutti, a learned philosopher and an architect joining forces for the passion and excitement of making natural wine and with no fear of the essential work and sacrifice involved.

The first vintage for Daniele and Chiara was 2014. They evaluated the soils, worked the vineyards all summer and rented warehouse space in a nearby co-op to make their first wines. They called their project "Ribelà", a local term in Roman dialect that means "re-birth" or "renew".
These wines represented the future and a true revival of Frascati, an ancient winemaking region dating back to pre-Roman times. The vines at Ribelà range from 30-60 years old, with a tiny parcel planted on un-grafted, piedi franco rootstock. Soils are a unique mix of volcanic basalt, sand, clay and limestone; something you only find high on the hillside of Frascati. Farming is combination of holistic Biodynamic and natural, non-intervention practices. The winemaking is rigorously natural in approach, with respect for the regions traditions as well as a "modern" understanding of natural farming and winemaking without any additives.
