Colli Romagna Centrale DOC

In many ways, Romagna (the eastern part of the region Emilia-Romagna) is a special place, full of contrasts: on one hand, you can find wines that may be drunk as easily as tap water, but on the other hand, you can also find extremely complex wines, that are certainly suitable to thoughtful rather than mindless serving – e.g. the white dessert wine, Albana di Romagna DOCG, which has, however, its own appellation.

One should pay particular attention to the wines from a not very large hilly area between Forlì and Cesena. There are excellent wines produced here from the grapes Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon but there are also the traditional varieties Sangiovese and Trebbiano Romagnolo, which are classy showcases of the area. In fact, the outcome has been so good that in a short period of time, it caught national attention in Italy and, quite unexpectedly, has been a commercial success.

Colli (della) Romagna Centrale DOC is a fairly new DOC appellation (2001), but the award is really a tribute to a small group of serious producers of the right casting, with the right blend of innovation, tradition and heritage passed from father to son, who have succeeded in raising the zone well above reclining mediocrity.
