Il Caggio is represented by a cross-section of a Roman Fortress built during the Byzantine Empire. It shows the different chambers and walkways that form part of these impressive structures. The Roman people were extremely organised and innovative, and they considered wine to be a staple drink!
Background information - Minini was established in 1920 when Mr. Francesco Minini, a young soldier, came back from First World War: with a little money and a great determination decided to start the wine business in a rural economy and a poor market. At the beginning of the ‘60s, the big growth of the Company forces the Mininis’ to move into a new Winery, which is still the current headquarters, even though enlarged and restored. During all these years the Minini Family never forgot its tight link with the land, developing new cooperation projects with growers all over the main production areas of Italy. This allowed the Family to widen the portfolio of wines to support its introduction to the International markets. Their strategy has been to source new wines from the plenty of unique ancient vineyards typical of Italy, rediscovering, with the new technologies of wine-making, the value of the Italian tradition.
