Berta Sangiovese Romagna DOC
Berta is 100% Romagna DOC Sangiovese produced by Podere La Berta winery, on the hills of Faenza (RA). The quince, that decorates the label of this red wine, was once the mainstay of the small farm economy. Grandmothers’ preserves were a fixture on sideboards, quince marmalades gladdened holiday afternoons, and no meal table was without them to perfume the room. The quince has tart flesh and a significant tannin content; when cooked, it is utterly delicious. La Berta is its home. And the rustic Sangiovese grape, with its fine balance of wild berryfruit, acidity, and supple tannins, embodies Romagna’s agricultural traditions.
After the harvest, the fermentation is carried out in steel and the subsequent aging takes place in the bottle for at least 3 months.
Bright ruby red colour. Berta Sangiovese opens to the nose with hints of crunchy red fruits such as cherry and plum, along with floral notes of rose hips. On the palate it is fresh and well-balanced. We suggest serving it at 16-18 °C.
FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS
Berta Sangiovese Romagna DOC is an ideal wine to pair with everyday meals, from pasta with meat sauce or fish and tomato sauce, to white and red meat, especially roasts, cold cuts and cheese. Sangiovese is the perfect wine to accompany the traditional Piadina flat bead from Romagna, with Prosciutto or Squaquerone DOP cream cheese and rocket. What a delight!
Podere La Berta
In the early seventies, Marcello Giovannini left the plains of Lugo and headed for the hills of Brisighella, using his insight and passion to give life to the Podere La Berta. Under his leadership, Podere La Berta became a place of innovation and experimentation. The company set off on the path that distinguishes it to this day by choosing quality and unique grape varietals.
