Wine from the Rimini hills
ITALIAN WINE, TASTY TEMPTATIONS
The origin of wine making in the Rimini area dates back through the centuries. This is testified to by extensive historical documentation containing a wealth of information about the methods and tools used to make wine over the centuries.
From the grapes grown here, wines such as Doc Colli di Rimini: White, Red, Biancame, Cabernet Sauvignon and Rebola are made.
Among the reds, a leading role is played by Sangiovese, an excellent fruity wine that ages well.
Among the white varieties are the traditional Trebbiano of Romagna, Rebola and Bombino Bianco (known as Pagadebit), used to make wines either on their own or mixed with Chardonnay and Sauvignon grapes.
At the table, food/wine combinations prove very interesting.
The reds go well with grilled meat, dressed-pork products, tagliatelle bolognaise, and local “formaggio di fossa” cheese; the whites are superb with seafood and fish dishes, “passatelli in brodo” and piadina.
Tasty combinations in a land where everything speaks of art, including food and wine.
