Castelluccio is on the hills of Modigliana, between Faenza and Forlì, at an altitude from m. 250 to m. 500 (ft. 750 to ft. 1500). We are in Romagna, in a territory that used to belong to Toscany until the thirties, approximately km 100 (mi. 65) from Florence and km 50 (mi. 30) from Bologna. The total extention of Castelluccio is about fifty hectars (150 acres), with 12 hectars (36 acres) of vineyards and 2 hectars (6 acres) with olive trees. In 1975 in these badlands, made of a compact layer of marl and limestone, were located microareas called "ronchi", particularly suitable to the production of very high quality grapes. Two grape varieties are grown in Castelluccio: Sangiovese and Sauvignon Blanc.
The first one, natural expression of this land's caracter, is a grape of such great generosity and personality to have an important part among the world's greatest wines. Sauvignon Blanc, on the other hand, is not a local grape, but here in Castelluccio expresses unique features, never shown elsewhere.
In 1999, Vittorio Fiore with two of his brothers, Ermanno and Gian Michele, became owners, while his son and experienced winemaker Claudio, with the help of his wife Veruska, manages today the Winery. Fiore, who created in the early '80s the wines of Castelluccio and personally contributed to the international success of the Winery, thanks to his experience, gives a very important technical support.
