Le Cantine di Figaro, Ripatransone | Wines and People | Scoop.it

On a hillside, 494 metres above sea level, is ripatransone: a picturesque community in the marches region of italy, inland but overlooking the adriatic coast.
Fertile land and a mild climate all year Round but with good temperature excursions, mean that this has always been a perfect habitat for agriculture and wine growing. It is here that tradition comes to life and where the wine passion drives Le Cantine di Figaro. It is from the top of the fertile clay soils of Colle del Giglio overlooking Ripatransone and Montefiore dell’Aso, where "Le Cantine di Figaro" produces Red wines made from Montepulciano, Merlot, Sangiovese, Syrah grapes and whites from Pecorino, Passerina grapes and Manzoni.
