    Albana Romagna DOCG
    White straw wine

    This straw wine, made from Albana grapes, is the highest expression of a grape that has been making history in Romagna for almost one thousand years. The grapes are hand-picked from the sunniest slopes in the Bertinoro hills and left to dry on rush matting for about 90 days. The grapes are then crushed with a hand-operated press. Contrary to other straw wines, Olimpia is fermented in ancient Tuscan half-barriques (caratelli), containing around 100 liters, that give the wine a warmer taste and highlight its scent as well as its sweet and dry after-taste. This wine is perfectly paired with biscuits and desserts, as well as aged cheese.
