Canicatti, once a small village in the countryside, built around a watchtower dating back to the ‘400s; then, a winery in the ‘700s; after that, a small Olive Oil factory and, finally, towards the end of 1800s, a small elementary school was hosted here, where the teachers arrived riding horses. This was once the life lived in the village of Ragana and it’s right here that Ugo Testoni started to produce wine, inspired by those ancient traditions. His wine was well known and valued in the area and beyond. Ugo ’s daughter Maruzza and her husband Ascanio, together with their children, have rebuilt the old winery trying to give new life to the memory of the place, combining techniques of the past with innovative wine-making methods.
