Capannina

In Romagna the main aim of viticulurists used to be quantity, and in the vineyards there was a maximum of 2000 vines per hectare; now our plantations have 5000 vines per hectare, grown with the "cordone speronato" ("spurred cord") system to have a small number of clusters with high concentrations of sugar and colouring matter. The wine thus obtained hase intense organoleptic characteristics; it has a stronger taste and fragrance and it is good for aging. To choose the clones of Sangiovese we are helped by the research of the University of Bologna in Faenza. This clones are selected specifically for our rich and generous land, so that they don't have to be too much fertile (SG19T.SGR24). Another very important wine in our tradition is ALBANA DI ROMAGNA DOCG in its best version PASSITO.

The first references to this wine go back to the Etruscans, since this wine has certain organoleptic charcteristics that resist time. We also streamlined the old vineyard PERGOLETTO ROMAGNOLO, but it  remains basically the same.  These things demonstrate that this grape is different from all the others: its cluster is beautiful, its berries are golden yellow and the taste is sweet. It is also called the sugar factory. Even if it is produced in small quantities, I believe that we will get great satisfactions from this wine, both for its qualities and for its traditions and originality. After long researches we discovered that these grapes are better if they gomouldy in the vineyard to make raisin wine but also a dry Albana.  Trebbiano di Romagna is another good wine that, after some mixed vintages, is a good to drink with fish dishes from Romagna. Recently, my son Massimiliano and I started to sell our wines in Northern Europe and in the U.S., but mainly our customers are small importers and wine shops that collaborate with us. Our wines are not famous, but they offer great quality for a small price. Our customers are happy with us because the products are good and their profits are good.
