Romagna is the catch-all regional DOC title within the Romagna province of the eastern half of Emilia-Romagna in Italy. It was established in October 2011, incorporating approximately 3,400 hectares (8,400 ac) of vineyards that were formerly five seperate DOCs.
Sangiovese (or Nielluccio in Corsica), a dark-berried vine, is the most widely planted grape variety in Italy.
The vineyard was planted in 1991, on a medium-textured soil rich in skeleton with a deep gravel layer and south-east exposure. The yields per hectare are around 70 ql of grapes / ha. The Sangiovese vine is guyot pruned in the dry pruning phase and, during the summer, green pruning, defoliation and thinning of the bunches are carried out.
The harvest takes place manually during the 3rd decade of September.
Immediately vinified, the grapes remain in contact with the marc for 8 - 10 days.
It is a blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot, with an alcohol content of 13% vol.
