Emilia-Romagna is a vast region comprising nine distinctive provinces brought together after Italian Unification. It stretches nearly all the way across north-central Italy.
Colli Bolognesi Pignoletto DOCG is the second DOCG to be granted to the Emilia-Romagna wine region of northern Italy, after Albana di Romagna. It was created as Colli Bolognesi Pignoletto Classico DOCG in 2010.
The wine is made with Pignoletto, a white grape variety with many synonyms. Locally, it’s called Grechetto Gentile, or sometimes Alionzina or Rébola.This grape has a thick tannic skin and high acidity, which makes it highly versatile. At high yields on flat land, it is primarily crisp and neutral, even tart.
