A thick mane and gaze that bravely guard the keys to the city. It is the Ripano lion, the symbol of Ripatransone: the loyal guide that accompanies us while exploring the five hills of Belvedere, Monte Antico, Capodimonte, Roflano and Agello. It is said that drinking a single glass of Offida Rosso DOCG makes you become part of his epic courage. He is always generous and wise, but woe betide anyone who crosses him. Because only his friends see Leo Ripano’s human side.
