Bissoni is a small young winery which was born from the greatest and ancient mankind’s passion: getting the best from the earth while respecting nature and environment.

Romagna is by now a region where wine culture and vine-growing have attained the same achievements as in other Italian regions which enjoy greater international fame, like Tuscany and Piedmont. The quality of the wines made in Romagna is nowadays renowned both in Italy and abroad, where the great value per price of our wines (hardly to be found elsewhere) is finally acknowledged.

Bissoni’s wine-making philosophy is quite plain and hides no secrets: in order to preserve quality we limit yield to a low figure -60 quintals per hectare- and harvest by hand at the best maturation time, using the greatest care and attention. Thanks to these procedures, and to soil fertility, we get high quality grapes; vinification then is smoother and requires no particular processing.

Although Sangiovese is said to originate from this region, the fertile flat plains of the Po basin have had something of a reputation for quantity, not quality. The vineyards are at about 150 metres, planted on sandy-clayey soil. Sangiovese is made without oak, brimming with fresh red cherry and floral fruit and a juicy mouthfeel.
