Romagna Albana Dry D.O.C.G.
Albana embodies the memory of Romagna’s wines. Golden-yellow with glints of amber. An enveloping, exclusive and precious wine, characterized by exotic scents, yellow flowers and liquorice.
It is a legendary nectar; its elegant taste inebriated Roman emperors and has intrigued entire generations. It ennobles poor dishes and triumphs where the fare is richer.
Uva Flava Byzantium is the most elegant expression of Italian classicism.
