ITALIAN WINE AND LANGUAGE COURSE Learn to drink Italian!

INTRODUCTION

Long and rich is the tradition of viticulture in the Romagna, even going back 2000 years the wine of the region was described as exquisite and tasteful.
The king of Romagna wines, though, is Sangiovese, usually a robust red with pronounced fruity flavours, reminiscent of the great variety of produce and fruits gracing the area. More and more often, though, local producers of Sangiovese are making superior reserve wines of greater depth of bouquet and flavour, capable of aging gracefully.
Albana di Romagna, which became Italy’s first DOCG white wine in 1987, is usually dry and still with a distinctive almond undertone and finish. The traditional semisweet and bubbly version of Albana Spumante is a rich and sweet passito made from partly-dried grapes.
Other varieties produced here are Pagadebit, Trebbiano, Bursòn.
