The caves of Santarcangelo

Santarcangelo di Romagna, a medieval village that is situated on Monte Giove, since ancient times has been known for the network of tunnels dug by man in the sandstone, between the sixth and fifteenth centuries, and used for storing wine and food . A system so prevalent during the Middle Ages that they dubbed the local red wine "the blood of Jove" (the "Sanguis Jovis" became Sangiovese), as it comes from that system of tunnels, that the ancient inhabitants of the village called the ‘veins of Monte Giove’.

The restoration of the caves as a place for storing wine came thanks to the intervention of Le Rocche Malatestiane with the restoration of a portion of those caves returning them to their original purpose of aging the wine Sangiovese Mons Jovis DOC Colli di Rimini 2011.
