I Croppi Romagna Albana Secco DOCG 2019

£13.38

There are two theories on how the ancient white Albana variety got its name. The first is that it was discovered in the Colli Albani (the Alban Hills, outside Rome) and taken to Romagna by the Romans. The other is that it gets its name from alba (dawn), a reference to the bright colours in the grape clusters.

Albana grows best in the hilly region between Bologna and the Adriatic, and top quality ones come from around Bertinoro.

I CROPPI Romagana Albana Secco DOCG 2019 shows off the grape’s personality and its Bertinoro terroir, with clear, salty, mineral notes. This dry white goes really well with seafood.
