2012 Albana di Romagna Bissoni
|Origin||Italy, Emilia Romagna|
Romagna’s Albana grape gives a rich, chewy white wine — except where yields are too high — because it’s a rare white variety that is also tannic. In fact, Albana di Romagna became Italy’s first-ever white-wine DOCG in 1987. This variety probably produces more interesting sweet wines than dry ones Ian d'Agata, www.vinousmedia.com (Jan 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Raffaella Bissoni has always dreamt of raising the profile of Emilia Romagna's important grape varieties; Sangiovese and Albana. Her aim was to produce fine wines through careful work in the vineyards, being patient and respectful of nature and its cycles. She wanted to bottle not only wine, but also her passion and her love for things done properly. And so in 1988 she founded the Bissoni winery. Nestled on the beautiful hillside of Casticciano, a natural terrace overlooking the sea in the medieval town of Bertinoro. Today, she is living the dream and remains faithful to her values - organically certified these are beautifully crafted wines coming from her 5 hectares of pristine vineyards.
Time to fortify yourself against the winter chill. Wines to sip from small glasses whilst relaxing in a cosy armchair, slippers on, in front of a blazing fire. Fino sherry to liven the mind before dinner; a complex and luxurious Amontillado; Port both Tawny and Ruby; some red dessert wine from Maury to enjoy with some fine and dark chocolate; some warming Madeira; a selection of fine sweeties from classic regions; and a small bottle of super-sweet but oh so wonderful Pedro Ximenez.
