Emilia Romagna: the grapes and the wines
Emilia Romagna owns 19 DOC (DOP) wine protected regions, including three for Lambrusco, nine IGPs and two prestigious DOCG: Colli Bolognesi Pignoletto and Romagna Albana.
The region’s vineyards are planted with over 18 distinct grapes, from which three covers over 50% of the area: Trebbiano (30%), Lambrusco (18%), and Sangiovese (16%).
For the finest wines in the region, try a DOCG level Tenuta Santa Lucia Albana di Romagna “Cru Artigianale”, it’s fruit-forward and floral and has a warm coating palate.
Reds are well represented too. Enjoy a different take of Sangiovese in a bottle of Tenuta Santa Lucia Romagna DOC Sangiovese Superiore “Taibo”. Black fruit and a gorgeous earth-scented palate with smooth tannins make this one a superb value. For an off the beaten path, the Tenuta Santa Lucia Rubicone Centesimino IGT “Centuplo” is for you. Bright cherry aromas and undergrowth in an easy-to-drink wine hard to forget.
