Mutiliana is a collection of wines from around the Roman hill town of Modigliana, in Emilia-Romagna. Owner Giorgio Melandri is a critic and wine writer who spent years studying the area and its varied terroirs. This intimate knowledge inspired him to set up a project focusing on the potential of Modigliana’s different sites and soils. Up in the Appenines the clay soils of the valley floor give way to poorer, looser soils of marl and sandstone, known as arenarie in Italian. From Modigliana there are three valleys that climb up the Apennines: Ibola, Tramazzo and Acereta which give their names to 3 wines made of pure Sangiovese, each expressing a unique mineral style that highlights the terroir its valley of origin.
