Wine Review Report :

wein.plus rating: Very good (89 WP)
Last reviewed: 5 September, 2019
Editor note: Slightly ethereal nose, preserved cherries ands dark berries, spicy oak, particularly reminiscent of cloves and some licorice. Clear, fairly juicy, delicately sweet fruit on the palate, fairly prominent tannins still quite youthful, and fine, good substance and persistence, hint of tobacco in the background, more slightly ethereal herbs and spices, some depth, smoky notes, but also quite a fresh stye, sooty traces, very good, firm, sweetishm juicy, dark finish. Should show excellent maturation potential.
Best to drink: 2020-2028+

The region with the capital Bologna is located in the north of Italy. It extends from the Adriatic Sea in the east with the area of Romagna to the inland area of Emilia in the west. In the north, the Po River forms the border with the region of Lombardy, in the south the Apennines form the almost 300 kilometre long border with the regions of Liguria and Tuscany.

The red grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Bursôn, Longanesi and Negretto Longanesi. In 1913 Antonio Longanesi (1854-1934) bought a property in the municipality of Bagnacavallo, west of Ravenna in Emilia-Romagna. An old vine was then found here, which was climbing up an old oak tree. His grandson Antonio (*1921) propagated it and made wine from it for personal use for many years. It was not until 1956 that his brother Pietro (1931-1999) used the wine as a blend for commercial use. Finally in 1999 it was included in the official register of varieties with the family name. This very old variety had been cultivated in the area for at least 200 years...
