Wine tasting from September 2019!
From September 2019 the Enoteca Regionale Emilia Romagna invites you to participate to our Wine tasting in order to discover the characteristic of the typical products of Emilia-Romagna region.
Every Sunday with a professional Sommelier Wine tasting in combination with regional gastronomic excellence:
- 8 September: Sauvignon & Chardonnay: discover the taste of international grape variety rasied in our terroir
- 15 September: Malvasia : Dry or sweet, sparkling or still: no matter the version the intense and long lasting aroma of Malvasia goes very well with many typical products from Emilia Romagna. Although it is traditionally known as a semi-sparkling wine, since the '90 it is possible to find also a still Malvasia. Some wineries have had such interesting results making a still wine out of Malvasia grapes that they have devoted all the Malvasia crop to i
- 22 September: Albana:Albana is, together with Sangiovese, the most representative wine of Romagna. Produced after the homonymous grape variety, grown on the hills of the provinces of Forlì-Cesena, Ravenna and Bologna, this golden wine has strength and smoothness perfectly balanced by freshness and tannins, something quite unusual in a white wine. Albana can be sweet, but also intense, generous and enchanting when needed. It is a Romagna-style combination of personality, smoothness and passion that was awarded in 1987 the first Denomination of Origin Controlled and Guaranteed (DOCG) among white wines in Italy.
- 29 September: Trebbiano & Ortrugo:Trebbiano is the most widespread white variety in Emilia Romagna, notably in the province of Ravenna. It is a very productive grape, with a good resistance to parasites. The wine produced from this grape is straw yellow, quite high in alcohol and not very rich in aromas. Not only is Trebbiano wine consumed as a still wine but it is also used as a base for making spumante or for distillation to produce brandy. In Emilia Romagna, Trebbiano Romagnolo is one of the grapes that are blended together to produce a number of still and sparkling white wines, dry or sweet. Yet, in order to fully appreciate its features, we suggest to taste a DOC (PDO) Romagna Trebbiano or a DOC (PDO) Colli di Imola Trebbiano, which are made with at least 85% of this grape.
Ortrugo is probably one among the many grapes already grown in the Piacenza area in the pre-Christian era, and one among the few we still know. First the hard frost in the four Piacenza valleys and then the American diseases decimated many vine varieties: Ortrugo is one of the survivors. It is an early white grape, with long and compact greenish-yellow bunches. Particularly suited for semi-sparkling and sparkling wines, Ortugo today is also made in the still version, particularly appreciated abroad.
- 6 October: Famoso e Rebola: Famoso, also called “Uva Rambela”, is a native grape from Romagna that, after being abandoned for a while, was reconsidered over the last decade. Vines are strong, adapting easily to rough soils and bearing cold weather. In spite of its strength, yield is quite low. It is nowadays cultivated in the areas of Forlì, Bertinoro, Faenza, Brisighella and Bagnacavallo, and from its grapes vintners obtain aromatic wines, similar to Moscato, with floral notes and hints of ripe, exotic and dried fruit.
Rebola is the name given to Pignoletto in the Rimini area, where this grape variety has been cultivated for centuries. Rebola is a fruity and velvety wine, easy to pair with food and able to feature complex perfumes and tastes when aged in wooden barrels or casks. Its main characters are colours ranging from straw yellow in the dry version to amber in the passito one, a delicate fruity aroma and a harmonious, pleasant, characteristic flavor, with different hints depending on whether it is dry, sweet or passito
- 13 October: Pignoletto: Pignoletto is a white grape used to produce the wine of the same name. Pignoletto wine can be produced according to the rules of 3 different denominations: DOC (PDO) Colli Bolognesi, DOC (PDO) Reno and DOC (PDO) Colli : Pignoletto Classico (still) is produced in the sub-area of the Bologna hills where the cultivation of this variety is more traditional. Here, the variations in landscape and perfumes, light and shade, heat and coolness exalt the organoleptic features of this fresh wine with a characteristic bitter aftertaste. Pignoletto Classico has obtained the DOCG certification* in 2011.
- 20 Ottobre: Lambrusco & DOC Bosco Eliceo: The Lambrusco family is the most widespread in the lands that extends from Parma to Reggio Emilia and Modena. These crispy and juicy grapes give a pleasant bubbly wine that is the most exported in the world. A successful trade that reflects Lambrusco’s popularity in its homeland, where Lambrusco lovers are divided in many groups: those who love the elegant and fine Sorbara, those who appreciate the intense Grasparossa and those who like Salamino or Maestri, then some prefer the sweet version and other the dry one, some enjoy the violet note and others like the hints of ripe wild berries. Whatever kind of Lambrusco you prefer, this wine is unique and highly recognizable on the first sip: freshness, bubbles and red fruit aromas cannot mislead you. Bosco Eliceo DOP is made by Trebbiano Romagnolo 70% and 30% Sauvignon and Malvasia di Candia. It is tolarated to include a maximum of 5% of other white grapes recommended or allowed in the provinces of Ferrara and
- 27 October: Gutturnio:Gutturnio is born by blending two complementary grapes: Barbera donates structure and strength, while Bonarda (locally called Croatina) gives elegance and smoothness. As these two grapes have different needs in the cellar, they are vinified separately and blended together only later, in a proportion that complies with the regulation and marks the specific style of the producing cellar.

- 10 November: Malbo Gentile: red wine of unknown origin, which has been upgraded in recent times to highlight their remarkable wine quality. Vinified in purity,often used for the production of novel through carbonic maceration.Malbo Gentile is found on hillsides throughout Emilia-Romagna.
