Bissoni’s BISSONI RISERVA – Romagna Doc Sangiovese Riserva

Company Profile

Driving through the road linking the medieval town centre of Bertinoro to the suburb of Casticciano, among the most spectacular hills of Romagna, you’ll spot a farmhouse surrounded by tidy vineyards and luxuriant woodlands: this is the Bissoni winery, founded by Raffaella in 1988.
The Bissoni winery stretches over 11 hectares, of which 5 are vineyards, approximately 200 meters above sea level. Two grape varieties are grown at Bissoni: Sangiovese and Albana, quintessential Romagna varieties.
For nearly 30 years Raffaella Bissoni has been focusing on grape growing, in full respect for the environment and the cycles of nature.
The Bissoni winery obtained organic certification in 2016, given by the independent and renowned CCPB certification body.
