Emilia-Romagna

Emilia-Romagna spans almost the entire width of the northern Italian peninsula, sandwiched between Tuscany to the south, Lombardy and Veneto to the north and the Adriatic Sea to the east.

DOC and DOCG

Today, about 15% of wine produced in Emilia-Romagna falls under the region's 22 DOC titles, and only a tiny fraction under its two DOCGs, Albana di Romagna and Colli Bolognesi Classico Pignoletto.

Grape Varieties

The most famous Emilian wine is perhaps Lambrusco: a sparkling, joyous red made from grapes grown near Modena and Reggio Emilia provinces. It is best enjoyed as a dry wine that is exceptional with local cuisine. Contrastingly, Romagna DOC’s best wines are largely based on the red Sangiovese grape, usually a robust red with pronounced fruity flavours. Albana and Trebbiano are important in making white wines. Easy-drinking whites are made from Malvasia and Ortrugo (which has its own DOC) and fruit-driven reds from Barbera and Bonarda.
