HISTORICAL ARCHIVE OF SANGIOVESI DI ROMAGNA
In Bertinoro the finest Riserva bottles are stored in the Riserva Storica dei Sangiovesi di Romagna (Historical Archive of Sangioveses of Romagna) to age for years and kept as precious treasures for special tastings to be held in a few years.
The aim of this project is to store and preserve the king of Romagna’s wines through a selection of Sangioveses from differen areas of Romagna (from Imola in the north to Rimini in the south) and allow them to age properly. When they will be uncorked, in the future, experts and journalists will have the chance to compare vintages and features of the different terroirs, focusing also on the common elements that are the core of Sangiovese di Romagna.
The Riserva Storica dei Sangiovesi di Romagna is a project promoted by Consorzio Vini di Bertinoro and supported by the Municipality of Bertinoro. The selection of Sangiovese is carried out by Giorgio Melandri, curator of the Riserva Storica.
The opening of the Riserva Storica was held on 11 December 2011, with the storage of the first bottles of Sangiovese di Romagna.
