About Rio Maggio

In 1976, Graziano Santucci planted the first vines that would become Rio Maggio and would forever change the course of the company's history. At its inception, the company was a little operation, but it was there that the lifeblood of Graziano's heritage and expertise was pumped. But he started teaching his son, Simone, right away. When Simone Santucci's father passed away, he and his wife Tiziana took over the family firm with the intention of expanding upon its potential.

To let the world know about the excellent wine that originates from these slopes. Both Simone and Tiziana pioneered the careful cultivation of premium vineyards in their respective regions. In reality, they sowed the grapes that would later provide two of the most revered DOCs in the Marche area (between the provinces of Ascoli Piceno and Macerata): Rosso Piceno and Falerio dei Colli Ascolani. After over half a century in business, the firm has matured into one of the most recognizable brands in the Marche region. Since 1997, Simone and Tiziana have followed their intuition and fearlessness in pursuit of their dream: making exceptional wines and turning the family business into a brand recognized and respected around the world. Today, this dream has become a reality.
