The wine-growing estate Fattoria Nicolucci has been producing quality wine at Predappio Alta (Romagna) for over a century.
The Romagna is the realm of Sangiovese and the wines of Romagna are nowadays internationally acclaimed. The outstanding ones are the fruits of those families whose main pride is the commitment to the highest quality. The sloping soils around Predappio are clayey and very dry, ideally suited to the Sangiovese grape. The wines are vigorous, weighty, smooth and quite suitable for refining. They perfectly match local food (cappelletti or tortellini filled with herbs, piadina with porchetta or mushrooms and game. Yet they suitably complement a wide variety of food styles also outside our region when the pairing requires a first-rate red wine (DOC Superiore, DOC Riserva).
The Romagna is also the home of Albana (the first Italian white wine to be awarded with the DOCG) and Trebbiano, which are ideal as aperitifs or to pair more delicate first courses like passatelli soup, or as dessert wines.
