Episode 748 Marc Millon interviews Giuditta Politi of Cantine Politi, in this episode of Italian Food & Wine with Marc Millon on the Italian Wine Podcast.
About today’s winery:
1200 A.D.: the Politis appear for the first time among the majors of Loretello castle. It’s nothing more than a reference repeated over time and more and more associated with wine throughout the centuries.
By the end of the eighteenth century, about 60 hectolitres of wine were preserved in Politi cellars.
It was an important production for that time, although there is no evidence about the kind of wine. However, the archives testify to a constant presence of the family on the territory and their vocation to the art of wine.
More than eight centuries have gone by, since that first mention, Loretello and its fields have witnessed different dominions and squires, wars and conflicts.
