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.
