Emilia-romagna Wine

Emilia-Romagna is the hyphenated name for the two provinces which meet at the capital Bologna in northern Italy. It’s a long, narrow region surrounded by the Marche, Toscano, Liguria, Lombardy and the Veneto. It’s one of Italy’s oldest regions, dating back to the time of the Etruscans in the 7th century BC. Once the Romans settled here, they took things a step further and built the Via Aemilia (hence the name) to transport wine between cities. 

In all, there are 22 DOC titles in Emilia-Romagna, and two DOCG’s: Albana di Romagna (more on that below) and Colli Bolognese Classico Pignoletto. The region, as the hyphenated name suggests, splits into two sections Emilia and Romagna. 
The Vitis lambrusca (as opposed to the more common Vitis vinifera) planted here by these ancient cultures are the signature grapes of the Emilia section of the region. Lambrusco is the lightly sparkling red or pink wine produced around Modena and Reggio near the Po river. The four Read more »

  • Bolla Sangiovese Sangiovese di Romagna 2009


    Now Bolla has been a label that I've not had much of, since the label was owned by a large liquor company for a number of years, and they were really focused on quantity rather than quality, and that really showed up in their wines. A few years ago, new owners took over the Bolla label, and although not a panacea, they have at least paid some a... Read More

  • Celli Sangiovese di Romagna Superior le Grillaie Riserva 2008


    Assaults the nose with funky, earthy, leathery bliss, which is great (if that's your thing). Nice red berry notes as well, and smooth, with enough acidity to pair well with food. Solid stuff. Read More

  • La Stoppa Ageno Emilia IGT Organic 2007


    The nose showed lush ripe apricot, spicy florals and potpourri with a dark and soothing character that drew me in. On the palate, it showed an initial burst of acidity and almost fizante style, yet it settled with time in the glass and revealed a juciy mix of bitter citrus pith, dried orange, and inner floral notes that lasted through the long f...
