Our history begins with Graziano Santucci, founder of the company in 1976, who dedicated to his vineyards passion and care.
Rio Maggio was born from the deep love for the ground and the territory. It rose as a small company with a strong attention to tradition.
As his father died, Simone Santucci, with his wife Tiziana, took over the company trying to make the potential of his countryside successful and fruitful and to spread world widely the quality of the wine that comes from our territory.
Simone and Tiziana were the forerunner realizing the cultivation of specialized vineyards in this area. They implanted vineyards for the production of two important D.O.C. wines of the region Le Marche, especially for the area between the districts of Ascoli Piceno and Macerata: Rosso Piceno and Falerio dei Colli Ascolani.
During these thirty years of activity Rio Maggio gained a top position through local companies. Since 1997 Simone and Tiziana have been working with enthusiasm, following their instinct to make their dream come true: produce great wines and turn the small family-run company into an appreciated and word widly known brand. Today this dream is Rio Maggio’s reality.
Rio Maggio wines come from this way of thinking: the wine is obtained from a mixture of territory, soil, work, fragrances, attention and its soul has to be respected.
The philosophy of the company is based on respecting the single plant and aims at the production of "wine into vineyard", thanks to repeated passages during the harvest to select the best grapes.
Quality and natural character of the wine are the bases of company's philosophy. It is supported by important choices, like the hand picking, the limited use of sulphites and products with low environmental impact and careful vinification techniques.
These values are reflected into a real commitment, care for details and consequently into a high quality wine.
