|The hilly territory around Agrintesa gives life
to great wines. Both small and large vineyards contribute to this cooperative
mainly from the provinces of Ravenna, Bologna, Forlì, and Rimmini. Their goal
is to search for innovation without losing sight of tradition.
Sangiovese Rubicone is so beloved in its region, it inspired the popular song "Romagna e Sangiovese" by Raul Casades - "Viva la Romagna et viva Sangiovese!" Get inspired with a bottle yourself.
