Frascati, Lazio 
Chiara & Daniele Bianchi 
2ha. under vine 
Biodynamic viticulture 

The land that now holds Cantina Ribelà was for many years owned by one of the largest bulk producers of Frascati. When they began to sell the land off, Chiara and Daniele were among the lucky buyers. The vines are between 25- and 60-years-old on volcanic slopes, with varieties Trebbiano, Malvasia di Candia and a tiny amount of the red Cesanese, all now farmed biodynamically. 2014 was their first vintage, with all the winemaking taking place at a friend’s nearby winery. In 2015 they have supplemented their own grapes with those from other local, organic, growers, and have eschewed the Frascati DOCG label to allow more flexibility in their winemaking.
