Description

The Rubicon river flows from the Apennine mountains to the Adriatic sea through southern Emilia-Romagna, and served as the ancient northern boundary of Roman Italy. It was here in 49 BC that Julius Caesar ignored the Senate’s orders to disband his army in the north and crossed the river in order to march on Rome and become emperor.  Legend has it that on crossing the shallow waters of the Rubicon, knowing there was no turning back, he uttered the Latin phrase “alea iacta est”, or “the die is cast”. This becomes dado è tratto in Italian.

Picked from a sustainably farmed single vineyard and championing the main white variety of the region, Trebbiano, with some Pinot Bianco, this is a lovely aromatic wine, pale lemon in colour with floral aromas of apple and white flowers, the palate is dry and crisp with flavours of citrus, green apple with a hint of pear leading to a lovely soft finish.

 

This wine is ideal as an aperitif or with antipasti, salads, grilled fish and pasta.
