ROMAGNA ALBANA SPUMANTE is the Denomination of the Albana Sparkling Wine, produced according to the new regulations come into force in 1995 for first time. The maximum yield per ha should not exceed 9 tons. Any forcing practique is expressly forbidden. Before drying, grapes shall have reached a minimum natural alcoholic strength of 13%, 16% after drying. The net dry essence shall not be less than 22 gr/liter. These are the parameters laid down in the regulations. Then, every wine-producer shall do his best to exalt the bouquet and the characteristics of this so loved and so hated vine species. At Celli, we love it because, for us, it is a tradition, a culture, a souvenir of our childhood when our grandfather allowed us to soak the “ciambella” (the typical Romagna-cake) in that golden and slightly sparkling wine which brought such a gaiety in our houses.
