Region

Emilia Romagna is a large region in northern Italy with more than 55,000ha under vine. It spans almost the entire width of the northern Italian peninsula and is situated between Lomardy and Veneto to the north and Tuscany to the south. It is one of the oldest of Italy`s wine growing regions with evidence of winemaking that dates back as far as the 7th century BC. The region`s geographical diversity plays an important part in creating the various terroirs found here. In the west the rolling hills and Apennine peaks give way to the lower-lying plains east of Parma, Modena and Bologna, and beyond that the coastal plains of the Ferrara province, where a notable portion of the land lies just below sea level. The river Po flows west to east across all these features, marking the region`s northern border and linking the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea.

Producer

The company was born as a retailer in 1928 in the Veneto region for sales of wines in casks and demi-johns to restaurants and small retailers. In the fifties the family expanded their horizons to selling wines across Central Europe and beyond. Throughout all this expansion, the Botter family retained control and the company is now run by the third generation and from their roots in Veneto they now have a portfolio of wines produced in some of Italy’s finest regions.
Tasting Notes
A fresh and zesty white hailing from the Rubicone IGT in Emilia Romagna. This wine is light and dry on the palate with notes of green apples, white flowers, pears and citrus combined with a crisp and refreshing acidity.
Food
A perfect match for salads, lightly grilled fish dishes and white meat.
