Le Rocche Malatestiane

This wine cooperative was established in 1994 by the merging of the most ancient vine-growing and wine-producing structures of the Rimini province: the Cantina Riminese and the Cantina Valconca di Morciano. The cooperative took its name from the Malatesta family, lord of Rimini, who had immense properties in the Marche and Romagna regions already in 1200.

Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, the most famous member of the family, was lord of Rimini in 1400 and commissioned the construction of the Tempio Malatestiano, Castel Sigismondo and many fortresses, used to garrison various areas of his properties. The logo of Le Rocche Malatestiane represents a stylised Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, one fortress and, at the opposite corners, the lordship’s heraldic symbol: the Malatesta Rose.
