Controlled designation of origin*
Made from 100% Albana grapes – one of the most representative grape varieties of Romagna – this wine will satisfy your senses with a pleasant flavor that is velvety and sweet but never cloying, because it is produced with grapes that are partially dried (appassimento).
It is ideal for accompanying traditional regional desserts such as a slice of pie, or ciambella (Italian breakfast cake), but also rice cakes or fragrant shortbread, and can be best appreciated if drunk at a temperature of 8 °C.
