Romagna
Protected designation of origin
Sangiovese Superiore 

A sapid wine, with delicate and clear fruit, which gently spreads over the freshness of an agile and elegant mouth.
This is a classic Sangiovese, reminiscent of the most traditional expressions of Romagna’s Sangiovese.
The name is dedicated to the childhood years Dino Zoli spent here, a tribute to the peasant world where children grew up together in large families, helping in the fields and caught in a jumble of quarrels (liti) and games.
