Gaetano Saccoccio

Co-founder, event organizer, wine and food selection


Philosopher “of anything academy” class ’74. Always in search of inns, vineyards, winemakers, artisans or stories worthy to be lived and told. His website is www.naturadellecose.com, an explicit homage to the timeless poem of classical antiquity. A true and virtual spacetime in which attempts to merge two increasingly irreconcilable worlds or models: that of scientific culture and literature, through a conscious education to drink, renewing of the disassembly of the Myths of Today and proposing a semiotics of the complex contemporary world – food industrialization, pollution, agricultural policies, climate change, trade speculation, taste homologation – interpreted through what apparently is just a simple glass of wine.

Alessandro Pepe

Founder, head sommelier.


Soul and spirit of Rimessa Roscioli, Alessandro Pepe has years of experience in the world of food and wine, which he communicates with huge passion and great know-how. Milan, Dublin and Rome are the cities that have marked and outlined his path. Today Alessandro can be found at the Rimessa among 2,800 labels, where he hosts tastings that are rich in information about the territory and the history of the products. But he also travels to discover new delicacies to offer his customers and guests.

Tomasso Frattini

Head chef


After attending Gambero Rosso School, he desired to deepen the cuisine of his roots, the Roman one. He worked at the Pastificio di San Lorenzo, then decided to travel and discover new culinary cultures. London, Madrid, Copenhagen and Malaysia add color flavors and imagination to his kitchen. But the constant search for the simplicity of the product brings him back to Rome and Roscioli that offers him the opportunity to promote the beauty and taste of the raw material. In this way he continues his search for recipes and products that characterize and enhance our territory and which have now become the characteristic of his selections.

Paola Carlomosti

Wine and oil sommelier


On a tightrope standing on my tiptoes, without any protection in the void, perhaps this is my nature. At the breathless search for a balance, which I may never find, and which perhaps, in truth, does not even suit me. Always too much launched on the hardships, with that attack so mineral, earthy, volcanic and that then leaves you a final mouth that tastes of salt, long and persistent.

Because I am volcano. I am sea. So, like a nice glass of white wine, I found my place in the world, and mine is the best possible world.

Michela Montanaro

Sommelier


At 13 I started to choose wines for Sunday lunch and my mother mentioned the sommelier's profession. If until then I did not know what I wanted to do when I grew up, I had no doubts. After the classical diploma I attended a professional course for sommelier and I graduated in foreign languages specializing in the study of wine communication.

Wine has been a true existential epiphany, the focal point of convergence of my passions; History and stories, travels, geography, literature, philosophy and even sociology. Wine is all of this and much more.

Mattia Moliterni

Manager


Born in Rome, I started working in restaurants very early and I have always seen Roscioli as a point of reference for quality catering, as well as a place full of memories, since I often went there.

I have always tried to link my work experiences to my reality, which gave primary importance to the research of artisan food and wine products, our priceless heritage. At Rimessa Roscioli, I found what I was looking for. Furthermore, our link with our producers is extremely close and this represents a fantastic opportunity to deepen our knowledge of this world in the most natural and interesting way, which I love to share.
