Casalpriore is a farm acquired in 1987 by the family of Gabriele Ronzoni, with registered office in Campogalliano, in the province of Modena. The farm, located in Stiolo di San Martino in Rio, in the province of Reggio Emilia, is conducted with organic methods and boasts a centuries-old wine tradition.
The large cellars with their wine jars on the 17th century farm bear witness to an important wine production of the time that had much older origins. In fact in the Statutes adopted by Borso d’Este, Lord of San Martino in Rio in the years 1441 – 1450 and future Duca in Ferrara, the cultivation of the vine is important and regulated with strict rules.
The area of the farm, with a part of pergola rows of 1960, is located on the border between the provinces of Modena and Reggio and the alluvial soil is favorable to the production of Lambrusco Salamino and Ancellotta, widespread in Reggio Emilia, but also of Lambrusco di Sorbara and Oliva.
There are therefore all the historical and cultural elements (the vocational soil and the biological management) to produce a Lambrusco rich in healthy color, but also fragrant and savory that captures the best of the two provinces.
