The spirit of Romagna is well expressed in this enveloping wine grown in the provinces of Bologna, Ravenna and Forlì-Cesena. Albana, best known for the ‘dolce’ and ‘passito’ versions, can also be enjoyed dry and may express scents ranging from floral to fruity depending on the production zone.
A wine that embraces metamorphosis, that can be sweet yet intense, but also strong and full-bodied. It has a strong personality that reflects a rural tradition and a distinctive character recognized in 1987, when Albana was the first of the area’s white wines to receive its DOCG classification.
