Additional Information on Fattoria Monticino Rosso Albana Di Romagna 2014

Winery: Fattoria Monticino Rosso

Region: Emilia-Romagna

The northern Italian region of Emilia-Romagna has long been a much loved wine region, associated with many of the finest Italian wines drank across the world today. Interestingly, the region's fine reputation is nothing new, as it was considered an extremely important center for wine making and viticulture over two thousand years ago by the Romans, and also by those who came before them. Today, the mineral rich soils and warm climate of the region provide excellent conditions for cultivating vines of exceedingly high quality, and a wide range of grape varietals are grown on Emilia-Romagna's fifty five thousand hectares under vine. By far the most prominent in the region are Lambrusco varietal grapes, used to make the region's flagship sparkling wines, and Malvasia.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
