Romagna Albana DOCG

Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin*

The spirit of Romagna is well expressed in this enveloping wine grown in the provinces of Bologna, Ravenna and Forlì-Cesena. Albana, best known for the ‘dolce’ and ‘passito’ versions, can also be enjoyed dry and may express scents ranging from floral to fruity depending on the production zone.
A wine that embraces metamorphosis, that can be sweet yet intense, but also strong and full-bodied. It has a strong personality that reflects a rural tradition and a distinctive character recognized in 1987, when Albana was the first of the area’s white wines to receive its DOCG classification.

A drop of history
Legend has it that around 400 AD, Galla Placidia, daughter of the Eastern Roman Emperor Theodosius the Great, stopped briefly with her retinue on the hill of Bertinoro in Romagna. Here, they offered her some of the area’s light yellow wine, Albana, from a simple terracotta bowl. Delighted by the wine, Galla Placidia raised the bowl and exclaimed, “You should not be drunk so humbly, but drunk in gold” – “berti in oro” – thus engendering the name of the town.

Colli d’Imola DOC

Controlled designation of origin*

This designation comprises wines with a distinctive taste, produced in municipalities that have a strongly-rooted historical and cultural heritage. We need only cite Imola, a city full of interesting sights, or Dozza, a town that has preserved much of its medieval past and charms visitors with its imposing thirteenth-century Fortress.
Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Barbera, Trebbiano, Pignoletto and Chardonnay all feature in this this DOC with its distinct flavors that echo the diversity of the landscape of a territory that is just waiting to be explored.

A drop of history
Among the varieties that make up the designation Colli d’Imola, Barbera in particular arouses curiosity because no-one is sure whether it should be preceded by a masculine or feminine article in Italian.
Throughout the course of its history, intellectuals and men of letters have debated at length the gender of this grape variety. The author from Modena, Paolo Monelli considered it to be feminine, and Carducci agreed stating “il Barbera sounds too harsh, “while Monelli underlined his conviction with the words “Barbera. It is one of the few wines that is feminine.”

Colli di Faenza DOC

Controlled designation of origin*

The grape varieties authorized in the provinces of Ravenna and Forlì-Cesena provide a rich mix of wines that reflect the timeless charm of their hillsides and territories and evoke the scents of times and traditions that stretch back in time.
The DOC Colli di Faenza comprises five different wines: Bianco, Pinot Bianco, Trebbiano, Rosso and Sangiovese. Each has its own distinct aromas and flavors, with its own characteristics, but they share a common personality. While the white wines should be served at a temperature between 8-10 °C and are best matched with local dishes of passatelli and tortellini, the red wines should be served between 16-18 °C and are ideal with cold cuts, lasagna and mature cheese.

A drop of history
These wines acquired DOC status fairly recently, in 1997. The charming town of Brisighella, a characteristic medieval village, gently perched among rocky pinnacles, features among the production areas.
