11:30 am – Head-on to the second wine estate.
12:00 pm – At this incredibly competitive family-run company, long established in the area and known for combining a traditional and innovative method at the same time, you will get stunned at how noticeable the level of the Bologna hills wines can be: 3 individual and distinctive interpretations of Sangiovese di Romagna, revealed through a guided tour of the winery, will be paired to top quality, locally-produced gourmet foods such as mortadella, salame, caciotta (soft cheese) and/or pecorino, thus making an unforgettable tasting lunch!
