The story begins back in 1914 with the establishment of the Berardino Santarelli & Figli company in Amatrice. The company then moved to Rome. The expansion, as in all well-managed companies, was a spontaneous consequence and therefore in 1955 Dino Santarelli decided to bottle the typical wines of Lazio. Casale del Giglio was founded in 1967, an intuition, little shared at the time, which saw significant potential in the area in the Agro Pontino, then moved there to develop it. Antonio Santarelli, with the advice and support of Paolo Tiefenthaler and Attilio Scienza, worked with a tetragonal quality in the decades that followed, in the 90s, without ever forgetting the objective of quality and quantity: an important line of wines and offerings high level that could compete with more renowned and appreciated labels.
