Historical notes

The Blood of Jupiter

Sangiovese Superiore di Romagna or Sanzves's in dialect, has all the typical characteristics of Sangiovese: we can distinguish the Sangiovese Base, more fresh / rustic and ready to drink, with Sangiovese Superiore more austere, elegant and powerful, even if it maintains its characteristic rusticity that changes dramatically according to the land in which it is grown and produced.  Historically it seems to come from Monte Giove, near St. Arcangelo di Romagna, where the monks produced, since the Middle Ages, a powerful and elegant wine that amazed even Pope Leo XII. After a first rediscovery in the period of the two wars it had a certain decline, and then, following the generalized increase in production quality over the last 20 to 30 years, it has returned to being more and more cultivated and vinified, always respecting the individual zonal characteristics.

Midnight escape

End of October, your company organizes a training course in Rimini. You stay at the Grand Hotel in Rimini, celebrated by Fellini, which sweetens your permanence with antique elegance. An evening you decide to leave the group. You walk to a small restaurant on the seafront. Once you're in and reassured by the warmth of a fire, you decide to let you suggest. They propose the Rimini style broth and a Sangiovese Superiore. Throughout the dinner, you are transformed into the harmony of the combination that gives you an unexpected and sumptuously simple experience.
