Sant’Arcangelo di Romagna was the birthplace of Tonino Guerra, a great Italian poet, writer and screenwriter. Today Sant’Arcangelo is a town of about 22,000 inhabitants in the province of Rimini on the border with the province of Forlì Cesena, but we see better the links between the famous Tonino Guerra and his native country.

He loved Sangiovese di Romagna which he believed to have been born in San’Arcangelo. For passion he began to paint labels for local wines and in particular Sangiovese di Romagna. Often in Sant’Arcangelo, in a restaurant that he loved a lot, he organized magnificent dinners with local dishes combined with Sangiovese di Romagna.Many friends were included, like Federico Fellini, Michelangelo Antonioni, Francesco Rosi and Marcello Mastroianni who loved the combination tagliatelle romagnole with Sangiovese di Romagna Superiore.

Guerra tells us this sentence: “… the true voice of my land is that which sings with its wines …”.
