Right after purchasing the farm, Maurizio Bavarelli started running it as a family business, he also planted new grapes like Sangiovese and Cabernet-Sauvignon, right next to the old Sangiovese and Albana that were already there.
The new cellar was completed in 1999 and a collaboration with enologist Fabrizio Moltard was immediately started. The focus of this collaboration was to promote and develop local varieties, specifically Sangiovese and Albana, two pillars of the tradition of Romagna.
Creating a bond between tradition and innovation, Maurizio managed during the years to elevate this humble farm into a place for great wine. The love for things that are done well and the respect for nature are what drives Calonga in the vineyard and in the cellar.
