From: Emilia-Romagna, Italy
Varietal: Sangiovese Alverdi is a tribute to Italy’s diverse winegrowing regions that offer unique expressions of well-known grape varietals. These approachable styles were designed to suit any and all occasions.
Tasting Notes: An approachable wine with aromas of violets and a mild hint of spice, Alverdi Sangiovese is a dry red filled with ripe plums, balanced by light tannins offering a slightly crisp finish. Produced in the northwest region of Emilia-Romagna, Rubicone IGT, this wine is vinified in stainless steel to preserve the naturally fresh qualities of the varietal.
Pairing: We recommend eating as the locals do, and do it up with Piadina or Tortellini en Brodo. Piadina is a thin flat-bread stuffed with local meats, cheeses, or veggies and is the preferred snack of Bologna and its surroundings. Not to be mistaken with panini (Italian sandwiches), these are more akin to thick, homemade wraps. Tortellini en Brodo is delicious and so special; originally a Christmas dish that made its way into many of the family-owned restaurants in the region. To make it, roll out your pasta dough as thinly as you can, stuff it with a filling of Parmigiano-Reggiano, nutmeg, pork, and egg, make the tortellini as small as you can, and cook it in a rich, salty chicken stock (traditionally made from capon) and you’ve got one of Emilia Romagna’s signature dishes.
