CORI, A VENERABLE HILL TOWN SET AMONG VINEYARDS AND OLIVE GROVES.

The ancient town of cori is set among the olive groves and vineyards of the lepini foothills. its urban structure dates from the 5–6th centuries bc, with polygonal masonry walls built on the steep slopes to create the massive terraces that supported the acropolis, the forum, the marketplace, and the residential areas.

Each historical period left important remains, now hidden among the alleys of the medieval quarter. The ruins of the temple of Hercules and the temple of Castor and Pollux still stand on the acropolis, bearing witness
 

to a distant age that continues to charm. 
The former is in corinthian style and dates from the early 1st century bc, while the latter is in doric style and was built between 100 and 89 bc.

The town is home to many artistic monuments of national importance: the medieval church of Santa Oliva founded on the ruins of a roman temple has an adjoining 15th-century cloister, the piazza del Pozzo Dorico in the town centre, the catena roman bridge, the medieval colonnade, and the 15th-century Annunziata Chapel and its fine frescos. 


Our History

WE LOVE WHAT WE DO, EVEN AFTER 70 YEARS.

1947
Foundation

Cincinnato
In 1947, several farmers founded the Cincinnato Cooperative in Cori with the purpose of processing and selling their own production and supporting the progress of local agriculture. They chose its name in honour of lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus, who led the battle against the aequi in 458 bc. Following his victory, this great roman turned down the honours and public offices offered to him, preferring to return to his land, which is said to have been in this area. 

1995
quality project

Cincinnato
Cincinnato put in place a quality project to recover and support the heirloom grape varieties Nero Buono and Bellone.
