Estate: Located in Ravenna, on the Romagnola Plain in Emilia-Romagna, northeastern Italy, the Randi estate was established at the end of WWII. The 40 hectares of vineyards are farmed using eco-friendly and sustainable methods, very little intervention is used in the cellar. Headed by Massimo Randi, the estate is one of only a few to cultivate the rare, native Famoso grape. [Rambela is the ancient, local name for Famosa.]
Tasting Notes: Pale gold in colour, very aromatic with vivid aromas of bergamot, lime, orange blossom and minerals. With flavours similar to the engaging aromas; bracing acidity underscores bright bergamot, lime, grapefruit, clean minerality and a trace of jasmine. A streak of bitterness compliments the fruity, crisp finish. Unique, distinctive and refreshing, well worth seeking out.
